FCA US is recalling 30,183 2016-model year Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee mid-size SUVs because of potential fuel leaks that increase the risk of fire, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The vehicles involved were manufactured from Feb. 10 to April 28 of this year. They are each equipped with a 3.6L engine built at the Saltillo engine plant. During assembly of the engine, the fuel rail crossover tube may have been damaged, which eventually could result in a fuel leak, NHTSA said.

“A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source can increase the risk of a fire,” NHTSA warned on its website.

Dodge and Jeep dealers will inspect the engine assembly for damage to the fuel rail crossover tube, replacing it as necessary. There will be no charge for this service.

The recall is expected to begin Dec. 19. Vehicle owners can reach FCA customer service at (800) 853-1403. The automaker’s number for this recall is S85.
