About 50,415 new Jeep Cherokee SUV models are being investigated in the U.S. following fire complaints in the engine area of the vehicles, Reuters reported on January 16.
A preliminary evaluation was opened by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) of the vehicles after two newly purchased Jeep SUVs caught fire. In the first complaint, a Jeep bought on January 2 became inflamed after only two days. In the second complaint, smoke in the engine compartment of the Jeep was detected by its owner. Eric Mayne of Fiat Chrysler stated that they are aware of the fire incidents, and they are cooperating with NHTSA’s investigation.
