May 22, 2018—Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is recalling more than 51,000 of its 2018 Jeep Cherokees because of a fire risk, the Detroit Free Press reports.

The company said it is unaware of any accidents or injuries related to the defect, involving fuel-supply tubes that could leak. The campaign is limited to SUVs with a 2.4-liter engine and does not include the refreshed 2019 Jeep Cherokee, Fiat Chrysler said.

"A company investigation discovered a batch of fuel-supply tubes may have connectors that were incorrectly fitted. If so, they may leak, creating a potential fire risk," according to a company statement.

Fiat Chrysler said it would inspect and replace the fuel-supply tubes, if necessary, free of charge.
