NHTSA Probes Jeep SUV Rollaway Complaints

The AP reports that the NHTSA is “investigating complaints that some newer Jeep SUVs can roll away unexpectedly after drivers put them in park.” Come 408,000 Grand Cherokees from the 2014 and 2015 model years are covered by the probe. The NHTSA “received 14 complaints from drivers, including five crashes and three injuries,” according to the article, which adds that “NHTSA posted documents about the investigation on Monday,” noting that “Jeeps have electronic gear selectors” but that the “shifter doesn’t move along a track like it does in most cars.” A Fiat Chrysler spokesman “said the company is cooperating with the investigation and that the agency hasn’t made any finding that the cars have a safety defect,” according to the article.

From the news release of the American Association for Justice.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
