FCA recalls vehicles due to NHTSA investigation of monostable gear shifter.

AutoWeek (4/27, Ramey, 2.12M) reports that the NHTSA’s investigation of the Monostable gear shifter has led Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) to issue 1.1 million vehicles recall “to modify the operation of the shifter that has now caused 121 accidents and 41 injuries.” The article wrote that the NHTSA said earlier this year that “the Monostable shifter is not intuitive and provides poor tactile and visual feedback to the driver, increasing the potential for unintended gear selection.”
