Vehicles Affected: Approximately 700 model-year 2018 Jeep Cherokee SUVs equipped with all-wheel drive
The Problem: The bearing cage for the right front half-shaft assembly may not have been properly heat-treated, possibly resulting in the bearing cage breaking and a potential half-shaft assembly failure. This could cause a loss of drive or allow the vehicle to move while in Park, increasing the risk of a crash.
The Fix: Dealers will replace the front right half-shaft assemblies for free.
What Owners Should Do: Jeep parent company Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will begin notifying owners Sept. 14. Owners can call the automaker at 800-853-1403, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
