Chrysler Recalls 300.000 Jeep Commanders and Grand Cherokees

Chrysler is recalling nearly 300,000 Jeep Commanders from 2006-2010 and Jeep Grand Cherokees from 2005-2010.
The recall is due to an electrical problem. The vehicles’ circuit boards have been found to be transmitting signals that trigger accidental gear shifts into neutral. If a vehicle were to shift into neutral when started remotely, they can roll away.
There have been 26 accidents and 2 injuries reported due to the gearshift problem, but no deaths.
Chrysler is in the process of notifying owners, and local dealerships will update software to take care of the problem. Repairs will be made at no cost to the owners.
