Christian Science Monitor (5/2, Read, 459K) reports a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration investigation of rollaway complaints related to the 2014-2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee, the 2012-2014 Dodge Charger, and the 2012-2014 Chrysler 300 has resulted in a recall of those models to fix a problem with their shifters, which rely on indicator lights, not the position of the shifter itself, to convey the gear of the vehicle, and has caused drivers to exit the vehicles without putting them in “PARK”. The recall affects over 1.1 million vehicles, including 811,586 vehicles in the US, 52,144 in Canada, 16,805 in Mexico, and 248,667 outside North America.
