Jeep Grand Cherokees Under NHTSA Probe After Rollaway Reports

The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration has begun investigating nearly half a million Jeep Grand Cherokees after receiving 14 reports from consumers that their parked Jeeps rolled away, with the engine running and with it off. NHTSA has opened a preliminary evaluation into 408,000 model year 2014 and 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokees after the agency was contacted more than a dozen times by drivers complaining that their vehicles rolled away after the gears were shifted into the “park” position.
