1. Fiat-Chrysler (FCA) recently recalled a whopping 4.3 million vehicles because of their dangerous Takata airbag inflators.

    This includes Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and even a few Mitsubishi trucks.

    This latest round of recalls has been split into what the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is calling "zones" across the country. See the full list of recalled vehicles.…

  2. Fiat-Chrysler (FCA) is recalling 1.1 million vehicles with electronic gear selectors.

    While the system is working as it was designed, it's the design that's the problem.

    "A driver should know the gear-selection based on multiple sets of indicator lights, unlike normal shifters that use a gear-selector position. However, hundreds of drivers have caused their vehicles to roll away because of not realizing the vehicles aren't in Park."…

  3. The occupant classification system (OCS) in some Chrysler 200's might not be able to, well ... classify occupants.

    During a previous OCS recall, some Chrysler 200's had the passenger-side module replaced. Others had new seat foam above the module installed. Unfortunately, if you don't replace both at the same time then the whole system's calibration could be off.

    That's bad news for you (but worse news for your passengers.)

  4. Fiat-Chrysler (FCA) used expired primer to install the windshields in the 2015-2016 Chrysler Town and Country and 2014-2015 Dodge Grand Caravan.

    And guess what? It's doing a terrible job preventing windshields from falling out.

    "_The automaker says lab results showed using urethane with a primer that expired in July 2015 always passed the tests. However, using urethane with a primer that expired in January 2015 failed 100 percent of the time._"

    Shocking.

  5. If it ain't broke, you can trust automakers to try and fix it.

    That's exactly what's happening with some Fiat-Chrysler (FCA) vehicles. Someone high up in the FCA food chain decided it was time to swap out the dependable gear shifter for something a bit fancier.

    e-Shift is a monostable electronic assembly that removes the grooves and tactile feedback of a traditional gear shifter, and replaces it with something much more confusing. The result? More and more Chrysler, Dodge, and Jeep owners have no idea if their car is in drive, reverse, or park.

    The new shifter has led to an increasing number of vehicles rolling away after the driver exited. How e-Xciting.…
