More Than 100,000 Jeep Grand Cherokees Recalled

More than 110-thousand Jeep Grand Cherokees are being recalled because their front seat warmers can overheat and catch fire.

DaimlerChrysler says it's had 32 complaints involving the seat warmers, including 15 injuries -- mostly leg burns.

The automaker says it has not heard of any crashes or deaths from the defect but it has been sued by six people who claim long-term injuries from seat warmer burns.

The recall involves the 2003-to-2004 model years of the grand cherokee sport utility vehicle. Owners should be getting letters about the recall next month.
