2007-09 Dodge Nitro, 2008-09 Jeep Cherokee recalled

Fiat Chrysler Australia has recalled the 2007-09 Dodge Nitro and 2008-09 Jeep Cherokee, over concerns about their tyre placards. According to the company, the placard on the Cherokee lists an incorrect load and speed rating, while the placard in the Nitro has the wrong speed rating and lacks a 'p-metric qualifier'. The incorrect information on the tyre placard could encourage owners to use their cars incorrectly, which could impact the safety of owners and other road users.
