Chrysler (FCA US LLC.) is recalling 412, 000 vehicles due to a problem with the power train that can cause the transmission to slip into neutral unexpectedly, potentially causing a collision.
The recall affects certain 2014-2015 Jeep Cherokee and 2015 Chrysler 200 models as well as 2015 models of Jeep Renegade and RAM ProMaster vehicles equipped with 9-speed automatic transmissions
The automaker is notifying dealerships who will update the transmission’s software. The problem stems from a lack of crimps in the transmission wire harness and this causes the transmission to slip into neutral without warning.
The recall begins on August 26, 2016. Owners of these vehicles may contact Chrysler’s customer service at 1-800-853-1403 and mention recall identification number S55.
