Chrysler Recalls More Than 643,000 Jeeps Over Ignition Switches

Chrysler is recalling certain model year 2005-2007 Jeep Grand Cherokees manufactured February 11, 2004 to July 5, 2007 and 2006-2007 Jeep Commander vehicles made between January 31, 2005 to July 5, 2007 over the ignition key, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
The reason: if the driver accidentally hits the ignition key with their knee, it could unintentionally knock the key out of the “run” position, turning  off the engine and disable airbags as well as power steering and power braking.
Chrysler will notify owners in September and is developing a solution. For more information, contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403 or click here.
