The Office of Defects Investigation (ODI) has received 14 complaints alleging that after being placed in Park the subject vehicles have then rolled away from their parked position. The unintended motion has occurred with both the engine off and the engine running.
The model year 2014 and 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles are equipped with an electronic gear selector (shift-by wire system). The gear selection is made by pressing the shifter-paddle forward or backwards; the shifter does not move along a gate path as with conventional gear selectors.
A Preliminary Evaluation has been opened to assess the scope, frequency, and safety-related consequence of the alleged defect.
