Chrysler recalls more than 230,000 SUVs for faulty fuel pump

Posted: Updated:
Chrysler is recalling more than 230,000 Dodge Durangos and Jeep Grand Cherokees worldwide due to a faulty fuel pump that could cause engines to stall.

The problem, which Chrysler said affects 2011 vehicles, could also prevent them from starting.

It stems from electronic circuitry that also helps to control the cars' airbags and other functions. The automaker says those features weren't affected.

Chrysler said the problem, which showed up as a pattern in repairs, hasn't caused any known injuries or deaths so far.

Customers will get a notice from Chrysler about when they can schedule service to fix the problem.

The automaker will foot the bill for the necessary repairs.
