Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is calling back nearly 4,000 vehicles due to an issue with their cruise control software.

The issue:

Company engineers have discovered that select Fiat 500e hatchbacks were equipped with software that could misread torque levels, according to FCA. As a result, vehicles could shift into neutral inadvertently.

The cars:
