Fiat Chrysler Automobiles announced a voluntary recall of roughly 1.4 million vehicles Friday in response to an incident earlier in the week in which hackers demonstrated that they could take control of one of the company's cars using the Internet.
The recall affects roughly 1.4 million American cars and trucks equipped with certain radios and 8.4-inch touchscreens. Affected vehicles include several popular models made by Fiat Chrysler's Jeep, Dodge, Chrysler and RAM brands.
