Jeep Recall U78: Half Shaft Bearing Cage May Break
2018 Jeep Cherokee
If the halfshaft bearing cage breaks, the halfshaft may not be able to transmit engine power, causing a loss of drive or it can allow the vehicle to move while in the "Park" position. Either condition may increase the risk of a crash.
