Jeep Grand Cherokee Brake Investigation - Closed

The NHTSA ( National Highway Traffic Safety Administration ) has closed it's Jeep Grand Cherokee brake investigation for certain Jeep Grand Cherokee Models. The investigation focused primarily on the 2014-2015 models. Almost 200 reports were revised by the agency, reports that allege the emergency braking system had improperly activated. Investigators were able to determine that the activations commanded by the onboard forward collision warning system are limited. Their investigation suggests that the onboard system itself can’t engage full ABR Braking. Not by itself, unless the driver applies the brakes. For Cherokee owners, the NHTSA said that the 2014 and 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokees perform just was well, or in some cases, better than similar vehicles tested by them. Essentially their testing showed the unintended braking occurred randomly, in short durations, for a variety or reasons rather than one specific cause. Meaning, influences could be the result of the environment, traffic conditions, and other reasons. With the conclusion of the investigation, the NHTSA has decided not to issue any kind of recall recommended. A recall, if put into motion, would have affected around 95,000 Grand Cherokees.
