The company said it was unaware of any related injuries or accidents involving the affected vehicles but warned drivers to refrain from using cruise control until the software fix is made.

Bill Bertrand, general manager at Morrie's Chippewa Valley Mazda, says it's important to pay attention to any warnings or correspondence regarding a vehicle recall.

Fiat Chrysler said that at times its cruise control systems automatically start accelerating to help cars keep at the same speed, such as when going up a hill.

Bertrand says getting this problem fixed is an easy task.

According to the automaker, someone has to be driving one of the affected models with the cruise control system activated.

Drivers could override the cruise control in case of a failure either by braking or switching the vehicle into neutral. Most of the vehicles being recalled cover the 2014-2018 model years.

In the meantime, the company is advising Australian motorists engaging in the cruise control system to be ready to use the foot brake if needed.
