FCA Australia has taken immediate action to address a safety concern in the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee by issuing a recall for a manufacturing defect in the rear tail lights. According to the recall notice, the tail lamps may not illuminate as intended, which could result in reduced visibility for vehicles behind the Jeep Grand Cherokee, especially during dark conditions. This reduced visibility poses a significant risk, as it may lead to accidents causing serious injury or even fatalities for both vehicle occupants and other road users. A total of 84 vehicles are included in the recall, and FCA Australia is advising owners of the affected vehicles to arrange a free fix with their nearest authorized Jeep dealer to rectify the issue promptly.
If you own a 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee, it is essential to check whether your vehicle is part of the recall for the tail light problem. You can find out by accessing the VIN list of affected vehicles provided by FCA Australia. Your vehicle’s VIN is a unique 17-character code specific to your Jeep Grand Cherokee and can be found on the driver-side dashboard or door frame. Should your vehicle be listed, take immediate action and contact your nearest Jeep dealership to schedule the necessary repair. Ignoring the recall notice could potentially jeopardize your safety and the safety of others on the road.
