The affected vehicles were sold between 1 June 2013 and 1 January 2019 (Model Years 2014 and 2015).
The recall notice, lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), says: “In some vehicles the signal from the crankshaft position sensor may fail. This may result in an engine stall (loss of engine power), as well as loss of the ability to restart the engine.”
“A sudden loss of engine power increases the risk of an accident and injury or death to vehicle occupants or other road users.”
CarAdvice has reached out to a spokesperson for Jeep in Australia for comment on the fault. This story will be updated when more information becomes available.
