U.S. probes Jeep brak­ing sys­tem

Los Angeles Times - - BUSINESS BEAT -

U.S. safety reg­u­la­tors are in­ves­ti­gat­ing com­plaints that the au­ton­o­mous brak­ing sys­tem on newer Jeep Grand Chero­kees can come on for no rea­son, in­creas­ing the risk of rear-end crashes.

The Na­tional High­way Traf­fic Safety Ad­min­is­tra­tion said the probe cov­ers about 20,000 Grand Chero­kees from the 2014 model year. The Jeep sport util­ity ve­hi­cles are equipped with cruise con­trol sys­tems that au­to­mat­i­cally brake if they’re closing too fast on an ob­ject in front of them.
