2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee - becareful

I love my JGC, but some people are having difficulty with the transmission shifter.

I saw the headline that actor Anton Yelchin was killed when his car ran him over. Engine was running, but in neutral (not park). I suspected the JGC was involved and that appears to be the case.

My car is under a recall notice... Jeep has to fix something... But, They don't know what they are going to do.

I visited a Jeep dealer last week. The 2016 JGC has a traditional shifter. All the 2015s have been impounded (on the lot, but cannot be sold). This dealer had at least a dozen 2015s.

I think this transmission shifter issue also applies to the 2014 models.

I have a 2015 JGC and heard about this as well but so far no problems. I think awareness is a good thing but I do hope they come up with a fix. I am frankly not sure exactly what the recall is supposed to do.

Found this

Manufacturer: Chrysler (FCA US LLC)

Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain model year 2012-2014 Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300 vehicles manufactured February 15, 2011, to November 27, 2014, and 2014-2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles manufactured July 16, 2012, to December 22, 2015. The affected vehicles, equipped with an eight-speed automatic transmission and a monostable gear selector, may not adequately warn the driver when driver's door is opened and the vehicle is not in PARK, allowing them to exit the vehicle while the vehicle is still in gear.
Drivers thinking that their vehicle's transmission is in the PARK position may be struck by the vehicle and injured if they attempt to get out of the vehicle while the engine is running and the parking brake is not engaged.
FCA will notify owners, and dealers will update the vehicle software to mitigate the risk of vehicle rollaway, free of charge. Owners were mailed interim notices on May 14, 2016. Owners will receive a second notice when remedy parts become available. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is S27.
