Chrysler is recalling some 2011 Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs because a fuel pump part may fail, according to filings on the NHTSA website.
The recall may affect 188,723 SUVs manufactured between Jan. 5, 2010 and July 20, 2011, with either a 3.6-liter or 5.7-liter engine, the agency said. A faulty fuel pump part may cause the vehicles to stall without warning and increase the risk of a crash, the agency said.
Chrysler will notify owners and dealers will replace the fuel pump part free of charge, according to the statement. The recall is expected to begin on Oct. 24.
Chrysler announced last month that it has created a new unit focused on vehicle safety and regulatory compliance after the automaker said in July that it would recall more than 790,000 Jeep SUVs as part of NHTSA’s investigations into ignition switches.
