Chrysler Continues Recall Roll With Brand New Sedans, Trucks And SUVs

When purchasing a brand new vehicle, one probably doesn’t expect it to be recalled in the next two months.

But that’s exactly what happened to nearly 21,000 Chrysler vehicles that may have problems with shocks and struts, reports.

Affected models include 2015 Chrysler 200, 2014 Dodge Ram 1500 and 2015 Jeep Cherokee vehicles built within a 16-day period in late May and early June of this year.

Officials with Chrysler say the vehicles may have been assembled using a shipment of shocks and struts that don’t meet the company’s quality standards. The components could break from their mounts which could result in reduced shock damping and loss of vehicle control.

According to Edmunds, the problem was identified by a supplier and the manufacturer is unaware of any accidents, injuries or complaints related to the issue.

This is the second recall for Chrysler in as many days. The manufacturer recalled nearly 800,000 Jeep SUVs for ignition switch issues on Tuesday.

The company has also been under pressure this year from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration regarding its slow-moving pace to fix Jeep vehicles that were recalled in 2013.
