Last week, Chrysler quietly released a software update for a collection of its vehicles that have an internet-connected computer feature in their dashboard known as Uconnect. If you own any of the following vehicles, be sure to update your car’s computer software:
- 2013-2014 Dodge Ram
- 2013-2014 Dodge Viper
- 2014 Jeep Cherokee, Jeep Grand Cherokee, and Dodge Durango
- 2015 Jeep Cherokees
- 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokees
- 2015 Chrysler 200s.
Note: the 2015 vehicles on this list are not on the official recall, but advisors at Wired.com suggest owners of these vehicles be proactive due to existing vulnerabilities of the Uconnect system.
