Chrysler recalls 651,000 SUVs for fire risk from mirror lights

Chrysler says it is recalling 651,000 Jeep and Dodge SUVs in the U.S. because vanity mirror lights that have undergone repairs can short circuit and start a fire if not reassembled correctly.

The recall is for certain 2011 to 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango models. Chrysler says it has seen the problem only in lighted sun visor mirrors that have been repaired. But as a precaution, it says the recall applies to all of the vehicles.

The automaker says it knows of three injuries caused by the lighted mirror.

Chrysler will contact customers and let them know when they can have the problem fixed.

The recall will total 895,000 SUVs around the world. About 45,000 are in Canada, 23,000 are in Mexico and 175,000 are outside North America.

Re: Chrysler recalls 651,000 SUVs for fire risk from mirror lights

We got ours about two weeks ago.

My dealer says they still have not received the parts. I'll plan on having them do this at our next oil change in a month or so.

We've never had a sun visor repair, but the dealer did pull the headliner about 6 months after purchase to chase down a rattle (which the fixed). I want to have it completed for peace of mind from that repair.
