Chrysler Recall for October 2014: Which SUVs, Trucks Are Affected?

Chrysler (FCAU) is recalling over half a million vehicles due to a variety of issues.

ChryslerThe move affects a number of Jeep and Dodge SUVs over problems with their stability controls. A debris cover protecting a circuit board on these vehicles could disable the stability controls.

Chrysler is also recalling heavy-duty and commercial vehicles because their diesel-fuel heaters might get too hot. Vehicles with a 6.7-liter Cummins diesel engine could overheat.

The company is recalling 184,186 vehicles for stability controls issues including 2014 Dodge Durangos and Jeep Grand Cherokees.

The diesel-fuel heater problem affects about 314,704 Chrysler vehicles in the US and more than 60,000 elsewhere. This includes 2010-2014 Ram 2500 and 3500 pickups, and 4500 and 5500 chassis cabs.

FCAU stock is up 12.75% Wednesday afternoon.
