2019 Dodge Durango, Jeep Grand Cherokee: Recall Alert

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 520 model-year 2019 Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs

The Problem: The front differential may have been assembled with insufficiently hardened pinion gears, which can lead to the gear teeth wearing down, resulting in loss of power while driving and also of the Park function when stationary, increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the front differential for free.

What Owners Should Do: Dodge and Jeep parent company Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will begin notifying owners May 15. Owners can call the automaker at 800-853-1403, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
