BREAKING! There's Been An Urgent Recall On The 2017 Jeep Renegade

in Team JP -

Cars.Com have reported there has been a recall issued for all 2017 Jeep Renegade's.

What Is The Problem?

It would seem that an issue has been flagged up, where by a malfunctioning indicator lamp may illuminate on the instrument panel, when in fact there is no malfunction. This is due to a software issue that has been identified within the vehicle.

If the light  illuminates at incorrect times & isn't working properly it can increase the risk of the driver not being aware of when a true malfunction happens, which in turn can increase the risk of a crash.

What Can You Do?

Jeep Manufacturer Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will be notifying those owners affected as of September 16th 2017.
