few months Ago we are all overwhelmed the death of Anton Yelchin for a possible failure in the gearbox and electric parking brake of your Jeep Grand Cherokee. At that time the manufacturer the Italian-american Fiat Chrysler Cars (FCA) ordered a call to massive revision to all the cars that had the gearbox that was riding his all-terrain in order to clarify what could have happen.
As was rumored the same actor had also been reported by this call to review, however it has never been clarified if it was pre or post mortem when it was received. However the problem has persisted to the present day and as reported by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the FCA will now conduct an investigation massive to check a million Dodges and RAM that could also be affected by this issue.
According to the drivers of these cars when they have arrived at their destination and have to leave the car, this as by art of magic scrolls (as happened to the actor of Star Trek). So now not only consider what happened to this model of Jeep, but that they will also study the RAM to 1500 (models from 2013 to 2016) and Dodge Durango (models from 2014 to 2016) with the automatic gearbox.
This unfortunate situation may be due to that the command of the gearbox is not clear enough and therefore the driver could be confused to choose the right position when you park your vehicle. In addition, we must also remember that Jaguar and Land Rover also fitted the same box of changes that the models investigated FCA and therefore they will also examine if any of its models, and has also been involved in some event like the one that lived the unfortunate actor.
Meanwhile FCA and the NHTSA will be put hands to the work for to solve this problem as quickly as possible. Although according to the vehicles previously called and those who join now the thing will not be quick or cheap.
