Chrysler is feeling the pain of automakers' recent troubles – 2011-2014 Jeep Grand Cherokees and Dodge Durangos are in need of repairs because lights on their vanity mirrors pose fire hazards.
Chrysler reports that three injuries are confirmed as a result of complications with these lights. This issue was repaired once by dealerships, but the recall was put out again after reports showed that the wiring may not have been correctly put together. These same models have also been reviewed for having problems with their brakes in recent years. The brake problem, however, is believed to have been solved.
With another significant addition to the amount of auto recalls this year, executives and safety officers are beginning to usher in higher safety standards, but some automakers worry that the efforts will become excessive.
