2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland Summit-002

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles announced this week that they would be recalling nearly 500,000 SUVs — including more than 350,000 in the U.S. — for a vanity mirror wire that could potentially overheat and increase risk for a fire.

The affected SUVs are model year 2011-2012 Jeep Grand Cherokees and Dodge Durangos made before Sept. 2, 2012. Those cars were the subject of an earlier recall that, if conducted improperly, could leave those cars more susceptible to a short circuit.

FCA said it was unaware of any injuries.

This year, FCA agreed to a fine and consent order with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which placed an independent monitor to oversee how the company conducts recalls. Earlier this year, NHTSA announced that former Transportation Secretary Rodney Slater would monitor FCA’s future recalls.
