Chrysler recalling 800,000 Jeep models

By Rebecca Lewis. CREATED Jul 23, 2014

Chrysler is recalling nearly 800,000 Jeeps due to an ignition switch problem.

The recall affects Jeep Commanders from 2006-2007, and Jeep Grand Cherokees from 2005-2007.

Chrysler said the problem can cause the ignition key to move to the off position, usually by a driver's knee, while the vehicle is moving.

That could cause the engine to stop, and the airbags to stop working.

Chrysler plans to contact affected owners by mid-September.
