A Note on the Recent Fiat Chrysler Automobiles U.S. Recalls
Recent recalls of vehicles produced by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles have been all over the news in the United States, and that’s left many Canadians wondering whether their vehicles are affected. It’s important to realize that these recalls pertain only to U.S. vehicles at this time.
Could the Recall Expand to Include Canadian Vehicles?
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Canada is working closely with Transport Canada to determine any actionable parameters regarding Canadian imported vehicles. At Jackson Dodge, we’re awaiting official word from FCA Canada on what those recall parameters are going to look like. The team at Jackson Dodge is on high alert for news from FCA Canada, and they’ll drivers know as soon as possible if any action is necessary.
Should I Be Concerned About the Safety of My Vehicle?
Mickey McGarvey, General Manager of Jackson Dodge, said in a recent YouTube video, “Our vehicles have never been more safe than they are today, and that can be said about the entire auto industry.” Fiat Chrysler Automobiles boasts a company-wide commitment to safety that is displayed by vehicles like the 2015 Chrysler 200, which was selected as a Top Safety Pick+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, as well as the 2015 Dodge Dart, which was selected as a Top Safety Pick.
“I’ll assure you that FCA has your best interests in mind and that safety is of paramount concern when it comes to our vehicles,” said Mr. McGarvey.
