Chrysler announced a pair of recalls for the Dodge Dart, Durango, and Jeep Grand Cherokee.They’re unrelated, as the Dart recall concerns windshield washer pumps, and the Durango and Grand Cherokee recall is for fuel rails. But the number of cars involved in both totals up to 88,888 cars, which is rather bizarre.
Breaking down the coincidental number, we first have 34,633 2016 Dodge Durangos and Jeep Grand Cherokees recalled because fasteners on the intake manifold can come into contact with the fuel rail on some vehicles. This could lead to a fuel leak, and a subsequent fire hazard. Chrysler believes only 30 vehicles will have this defect, but it’s inspecting any that could have had the issue.
