RepairPal Expert Overview:

U.S. Drive Right is recalling 897 imported Jeep Cherokee vehicles because they were sold without the required third (center mounted) brake light. This could result in reduced visibility, increasing the risk of a crash. Vehicle owners should receive a third brake light and installation kit in the mail, along with instructions to have the vehicle repaired by a qualified mechanic of their choice, free of charge. This recall is expected to begin by June 11, 2011.

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The design of the intake and exhaust manifolds allow for debris collection in the area of the number three cylinder. This may cause a fire hazard. Dealers will install a manifold shield to modify air flow characteristics to prevent debris accumulation.

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The information on how to secure a car seat properly using tether anchors using step by step, illustrated procedures is missing. Improper attachment of child seat tether straps to vehicle tether anchors could cause a child safety issue in a collision. Owners were sent an addendum to the owners manual that addresses tether strap installation.
