The Jeep brand has been around for a very, very long time. Jeeps gained popularity due to their promise of being able to get you where you need to go, even if there's a flooded roadway or maybe some boulders in your way. Reliability (or at the very least, the appearance of ruggedness) is one of the brand's biggest selling points, but you're not going to be able to get where you're going if your car catches fire. So, when the company was alerted to a transmission fluid leak that increased the risk of a vehicle fire, it had to initiate a recall.
A new recall bulletin posted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reveals that Chrysler is recalling a total of 18,800 2021 Jeep Cherokee vehicles due to a pretty serious issue with the transmission oil cooler hose. According to the company, the hose may have been "incorrectly cured," which could lead to a transmission fluid leak. Because of the heat generated by the engine and other moving parts, this fluid could cause smoke and/or flames.
