Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is fighting back after a jury awarded a "grossly excessive" settlement in the case of a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee crash.


A previous recall issued for the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango may not have been enough to fix an electrical problem that could lead to a fire, prompting the NHTSA to open a new investigation into the matter.


Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is recalling nearly 500,000 crossovers in an expansion of a September 2014 recall over the durability of the fuel-pump relay.


Jeep is still working to install trailer hitches on recalled 1993-1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee and 2002-2007 Jeep Liberty to make them safer in rear collisions. The company says it is working to notify owners in new ways to get them to bring their vehicles in, but fix rates are reportedly low and deaths are still being reported in unrepaired recalled vehicles.


Between GM's ignition switches and Takata's airbags, it's been a big year for recalls, but they keep rolling in. The latest comes from Chrysler, which has announced a pair of recalls for certain heavy-duty pickups and SUVs.


Alternators can fail, causing the 3.6-liter V6 engines to stall unexpectedly

Nearly 907,000 Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep SUVs and cars are being recalled for alternators that can fail and heated power mirror wiring that can short and cause minor fires.


Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is recalling a total of 747,817 vehicles in the US in two separate campaigns recently added to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration database.


Chrysler has announced a recall covering 349,442 vehicles due to ignition switches that can either become stuck or move without warning. All of the affected vehicles are from the 2008 model year, and were built before May 12, 2008.


The public might associated ignition switch recalls with General Motors – and with good cause – but that's not the only automaker calling its vehicles back in to fix that sort of issue.


You may remember that Jeep's unusual fix for this recall involves fitting a trailer hitch.


Dodge and Jeep are announcing recalls of a total of 895,000 Durango and Grand Cherokee models worldwide from the 2011 through 2014 model years. There's a possibility that the wiring in the sun visor can short circuit and cause a fire. It specifically affects vehicles built between January 5, 2010, and December 11, 2013, and there are approximately 651,000 of them in the US, 45,700 in Canada, 23,000 in Mexico and 175,000 outside of North America.


Jeep's saga with the National Traffic Safety Administration and the voluntary campaign to repair 1.56 million vehicles for allegedly unsafe trailer hitches, is getting yet another chapter. The controversy appeared to finally be over in January when the automaker found a supplier for the replacement parts. Nothing is ever that easy, though, and the government regulator is now requesting documents from the company to clarify why the repairs are taking so long to begin.


Chrysler is being targeted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in a pair of actions that focus on over 1.2 million Jeeps, minivans and crossovers.


Chrysler is issuing recalls covering roughly 31,700 vehicles worldwide due to two separate problems. In both cases the company believes that most of the affected vehicles are either still on, or in transit to, dealer lots.


UPDATE: An earlier version of this story contained language erroneously linking this recall action to a Jeep Grand Cherokee/Dodge Durango brake recall announced in March. According to Eric Mayne, a media relations manager at Chrysler, the two safety issues are unrelated. The text in the story below has been updated to reflect this information.


Chrysler has announced that it is recalling over 25,000 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango SUVs from several markets over concerns about brake feel under hard braking. The affected models are from the 2012 and 2013 model years, although the actual dates of production aren't available. 18,700 are in the US, while 825 are in Canada, 530 are in Mexico and a further 5,200 outside of North America.
