Jeep Grand Cherokee on the hot seat, recall-wise
The hot seats can be found in 112,000 Grand Cherokees from the 2003 and 2004 model years, equipped with seat heaters. Apparently the passenger-side seat can overheat, a problem which led to at least 32 vehicle fires.
The cooling fan recall affects about 150,000 Grand Cherokees equipped with the 4-liter six-cylinder engine and sold in the 2000 and 2002 model years. Blades can break off the fan while it's running, potentially injuring anyone within range if the hood is open. The NHTSA has received nearly 200 complaints about the problem.
