Jeep Patriots May Pose Stalling Hazard

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is investigating the engines on Jeep Patriot SUVs for stalling issues after receiving a dozen complaints that include two reported injuries.

The Associated Press reports that 112,000 Patriots of model years 2011 and 2012 were to be investigated in the U.S. and another 18,000 in Canada.

Among the complaints received by the NHTSA, 10 incidents occurred at speeds higher that 65-miles-per-hour. In eight incidents, the vehicles could not be restarted and had to be towed.

The NHTSA will investigate the problem to ascertain whether it is extensive enough to prompt a recall. Chrysler and the NHTSA are working together on the probe.

 Any owners who are concerned about their vehicles should contact their dealers.
