Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is recalling an estimated 21,104 2017-2018 Jeep Renegade front-wheel-drive flex fuel (E85) subcompact SUVs equipped with a 2.4-liter engine because of a manufacturing error in the fuel pump assembly.
Specifically, under certain operating conditions such as high power demand in conjunction with high altitude and/or high ambient temperatures, the fuel pump assembly may cause a loss of fuel pressure leading to a stall, which increases the chance of a collision.
To fix the problem, FCA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fuel pump, at no cost to owners.
The recall begins Dec. 6. Owners can reach FCA customer service at (800) 853-1403. The number for this recall is UB2.
