Chrysler has issued a recall on 469,000 Jeep SUVs because the vehicles can shift into neutral on startup without warning.

The problem, caused by cracks in a circuit board that causes faulty signals, has led to at least 26 crashes and two injuries, according to the company.

Affected models include 2005 to 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokees and 2006 to 2010 Jeep Commanders.
