FCA Recalling More Than 800K Vehicles to Enhance 'Park' Warnings

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is recalling 811,586 vehicles after it has been found that drivers have exited their vehicles without first selecting "Park" on their shifter.

According to FCA, the vehicles affected by the recall are equipped with electronic shift levers that return to the same position after each change. As a result, gear selection is conveyed to the driver by multiple sets of indicator lights, not gear-selector position, causing some drivers to draw erroneous conclusions about the status of their vehicles. Although FCA is aware of 41 injuries potentially related to the issue, it stressed that the vehicles involved were inspected and no evidence of equipment failure has been found.

My wife's new Grand Cherokee Limited the sound level of the engine is extremely quiet, so you don't hear the engine at all. The shifter easily moves between gears and is very easy to leave in neutral or reverse instead of park (I've done it several times by mistake). I've learned to put the emergency brake on, then check to see where the shifter is located by looking at the indicator on the dash. Too easy to miss gears, especially if you are not used to driving this model. My wife, who drives the GC 99% of the time, still has to watch to make sure the transmission is in Park and the engine is turned off.
