Fiat Chrysler voluntarily recalls 7,810 SUVs over software issues
Fiat Chrysler said Friday it is voluntarily recalling 7,810 SUVs due to a software glitch that could make the vehicles vulnerable to remote control.
Half of the vehicles, which are 2015 Jeep Renegade SUVs equipped with 6.5-inch touchscreens, are still at dealerships, the carmaker said in a statement.
The company downplayed the risk to drivers, saying it was unaware of injuries related to the problem and had received no complaints.
It further said “the software manipulation addressed by this recall required unique and extensive technical knowledge, prolonged physical access to a subject vehicle and extended periods of time to write code.”
