In an unprecedented move, Fiat Chrysler launched a massive recall on Friday in an attempt to protect its vehicles from computer hackers. In total, 1.4 million cars were recalled to update the infotainment software found in certain vehicles.
“Launching a recall is the right step to protect Fiat Chryslerâ€™s customers, and it sets an important precedent for how NHTSA and the industry will respond to cyber security vulnerabilities,” NHTSA Administrator Mark Rosekind said in a statement.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is investigating to determine whether the recall will be effective.
