Detroit: Fiat Chrysler is recalling more than 1.1 million cars and midsize SUVs worldwide because their gear shifters may confuse drivers and allow them to exit their vehicles without placing them in "park."

The recall covers the 2012-2014 Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300 sedans and the 2014-2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV. FCA is recalling 811,586 vehicles in the US and 317,616 elsewhere.

An investigation by FCA and the US government found that the electronic gear shifters in the vehicles were confusing and might lead people to believe that they were parked even if they weren't. FCA is aware of 41 injuries potentially related to the problem.

Owners will be notified. Dealers will update the transmissions so they won't move once the driver has exited. They will also add enhanced warning signals.
