Fiat Chrysler asks some owners to return to dealers after software upgrade fails to fix gearshifts.


The AP (11/16, Krisher) reports Fiat Chrysler has asked about 29,000 owners, including 13,000 in the US, to return their 2014-2015 Jeep Grand Cherokees and the 2012-2014 Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300 to the dealers after a software patch “designed to fix confusing gear shifters on 1.1 million Fiat Chrysler vehicles didn’t work” on their cars. The AP adds that “the problem, reported in a document released this week by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, was discovered in a Fiat Chrysler audit.”
