Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) Australia has recalled eight of its Jeep Grand Cherokee (WK) model over a crankshaft issue.

The fault could result in the engine stalling, the driver being unable to restart it, or total loss of engine power, increasing the risk of an accident happening.

When parts become available, FCA Australia will contact owners of the affected model advising them to take their vehicle to their preferred Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep dealer for repair, free of charge.
