Two recalls by Chrysler have been announced about lately. The two recalls are quite different from each other, each of them affecting certain number of vehicles. The total number of the affected vehicles is 31,700.
The first recall affects nearly 10,700 vehicles manufactured between January 16 and April 17, 2014. Affected by the recall are model-year 2014 Dodge Durango, Jeep Cherokee, Grand Cherokee and Grand Cherokee SRT models. The problem affecting these vehicles is that if the cruise is on and the driver presses on the throttle, the acceleration might last for up to two seconds in certain cases.
It should be noted that the automaker is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to the problem. According to the data provided by the manufacturer, 6,100 vehicles are affected in the US, 950 in Canada, 425 in Mexico and 3,200 outside of North America.
The second recall affects nearly 21,000 Ram ProMaster vans from 2014 model-year. The automaker needs to replace certain electrical parts in these vehicles. The thing is that the automaker has found several cases of blown fuses in the vans. This condition is related to moisture exposure. The automaker is not aware of any injuries this time, either.
