REASON FOR THIS SAFETY RECALL
Some of the 2018 SRT Jeep Grand Cherokee’s and Trackhawk vehicles have been built with driver floor mats exhibiting an unacceptable amount of clearance between the mat and the accelerator pedal. This can cause the restriction of the pedal returning to the idle position. Unintended engine power can cause a vehicle crash without prior warning.
FCA US will conduct a voluntary safety recall to inspect the SRT Jeep Grand Cherokee driver’s floor mat part number and replace the mat if it is the defective part. Dealers will be notified of the launch of this safety recall by way of established communication methods. This recall is estimated to launch in 4th Quarter of 2018.
