CHICAGO - Special Report -- Over the years, the International Carwash Association (ICA) has tracked and reported on many incidents of "sudden acceleration" by Jeep Cherokee models (Grand, Laredo and Sport) in professional carwashes. This problem has caused a considerable amount of damage to both our business and other vehicle's. In some cases the most unfortunate incidents involve our employees or innocent customers.
The ICA continues to get reports about this problem occurring in our businesses and wants to increase the awareness of this problem. The ICA has spent considerable time and resources trying to find a solution to this problem, unfortunately this incident does not appear to be industry-specific to professional carwashing. Please continue to report incidents to the Damage Control Center at www.carcarecentral.com so that we can continue to monitor the situation and be prepared for future action.
