The investigation affects about 112,000 Patriots from the 2011 and 2012 model years that were sold in the United States. Chrysler Group LLC, the maker of Jeeps, sold another 18,000 in Canada.

NHTSA said Friday that it received a dozen complaints about stalling.

Ten of the incidents occurred while the Jeeps were going 65 miles per hour or faster.

Chrysler said it is cooperating with NHTSA and that the Patriot has an excellent safety record.
