According to the Los Angeles Times (2/28, Panzar, 3.49M), Chrysler Group recalled approximately 467,480 SUVs around the world “to repair a problematic fuel pump relay that may cause the vehicles to stall or not start.” The article notes, vehicle models include “2012 and 2013 Dodge Durango SUVs and 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs equipped with 3.0-liter diesel engines.” According to the article, the Chrysler Groups stated the recall affects “338,216 vehicles in the U.S., 18,991 in Canada, 10,829 in Mexico and 99,444 outside the NAFTA region.” A report earlier this month by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration found that “a record 63.9 million vehicles in the U.S. last year.”
        The Wall Street Journal (2/28, Chen, Subscription Publication, 5.67M) also reports on the recall, adding that FCA US LLC, a subsidiary of the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV, voluntarily recalled the cars and is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to the recalled part at this time.
