Jeep Cherokee

NHTSA looks into complaints about faulty collision avoidance system.

The Wall Street Journal (6/16, Ramsey, Subscription Publication, 5.68M) reports that after a Honda recall targeting two Acura models last month, US safety investigators are turning their attention to the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee, which some drivers have complained deploys the automatic brakes for no reason. The NHTSA also received complaints from Honda, Fiat Chrysler, and GM vehicles for the same reason. Infiniti, which had dealth with a similar problem, found it was tied to one New Jersey bridge specifically, while Volvo said it recorded fewer accidents in vehicles equipped with collision avoidance system.
