Chrysler, a unit of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV, is recalling 895,000 SUVs due to fire concerns.
The automaker said it will reroute wiring for vanity-mirror lights after government regulators upgraded an investigation into the issue, reports The Detroit News.
If a recalled SUV “was involved in a repair related to servicing the vanity mirror and/or headliner, the wiring — located inside the sun visor — may be subject to short-circuit and fire if not appropriately reassembled by the dealer. This condition is not present in vehicles which have not had the headliner or vanity mirror serviced,” Chrysler said.
The recall campaign covers some 2011-2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango SUVs. A recall repair schedule has yet to be announced.
Chrysler was aware of 62 reports of fire incidents. The recall includes 651,000 vehicles in the U.S.; 45,700 are in Canada; 23,000 are in Mexico and 175,000 are outside the NAFTA region.
