2018 Jeep Renegade Recalled

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is recalling certain front-wheel-drive 2017-2018 Jeep Renegade SUVs equipped with the 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine because of concerns over potential stalling.

RECENT FCA RECALLS

A manufacturing error with the fuel pump assembly could cause the affected Renegades to experience a loss of fuel pressure during high-demand usage (when the driver might stomp on the gas pedal, for example), when at a high altitude, or in an area with high temperatures.

Drivers who experience this problem may see a check-engine light illuminate on the dash, and the engine may feel like it is running roughly (with unexpected or unusual vibrations) or with reduced power, the automaker said.

FCA has advised dealerships to stop selling these models in their inventories until a repair can be performed.
