Chrysler has issued a recall on almost 5 million vehicles due to an issue with the cruise control system. The motor company has discovered a defect that could prevent a driver from being able to manually turn off cruise control.
Meaning the car would maintain its current, cruise control speed or possibly even accelerate, increasing the risk of crash if it can't be disengaged.
Chrysler states it's "unlikely" such a sequence of events would happen, adding that the brake pedal would still stop cruise control on some of its vehicles.
Otherwise, they instruct drivers to shift the vehicle into neutral and then brake. There have been no crashes reported as of yet, still Chrysler is issuing the recall as a precautionary measure.
