Recently, the United States declared that it will carry out an investigation on the 2012-edition Jeep Grand Cherokee for hidden dangers in its steering system.

Recently, the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) declared that it will investigate the 2012-edition Jeep Grand Cherokee for hidden dangers in its power steering hydraulic tube, which may lead to fire accidents and casualties. According to sources, more than 100,000 Grand Cherokee jeeps will be involved in this investigation.

Since the beginning of May, the NHTSA has received two reports of fire accidents. One report said that it is quite possible that the fires were caused by the power steering soft tube. The tube leaked fluid to a high-temperature part of the engine, leading to combustion. The other report said that due to the leakage of power steering fluid, the steering wheel lost its force.

"Chrysler Group takes all customer complaints seriously and is cooperating fully with NHTSA," Chrysler spokesman Eric Mayne said in response to the defect investigation.
