"The company discovered air-conditioning lines on some vehicles may have been installed in close proximity to their engines' exhaust manifolds," Fiat-Chrysler said in a statement. "Under certain operating conditions, this may pose a fire risk."
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration received two customer complaints involving smoke and fire. Fiat-Chrysler then launched an investigation into the complaints.
Fiat-Chrysler said it is not aware of any injuries or accidents linked to the recall.
No information about the recall has been posted on the website of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which oversees vehicle safety in the U.S.
Edmunds says: Owners who notice air-conditioning loss or any other concern, such as a dashboard warning light, should contact their Jeep dealers now. Others should wait for their official recall notice and then schedule a service appointment.
