Jeep is recalling its mid-sized Cherokee SUV as there’s a risk of a fire.

“This rubber can rupture, allowing transmission fluid to leak.
“Transmission fluid leaking from a TOC hose may contact an ignition source, leading to a vehicle fire. A vehicle fire may increase the risk of injury or death of vehicle occupants and/or bystanders, as well as property damage.”
