Jeep Wrangler and Jeep Gladiator Recalls More Than 42,000 Vehicles Because of Part that May Overheat and Cause Fires

Chrysler (FCA US, LLC) has issued another recall for Jeep Wrangler models because of defective clutch pressure plates. This defective part can overheat and cause a fire. The defect can also damage other nearby components which can result in debris falling on the road or loss of control which can lead to a crash. This recall relates to the 2018-2021 Jeep Wrangler and 2020-2021 Jeep Gladiator models. This is the second recall for the same issue. The previous recall was issued in March 2020.

For more information about the recalls, the NHTSA has set up an alert with information for customers affected by this problem.

Jeep Wrangler and Jeep Gladiator owners can expect to be contacted by Chrysler which is working on a software correction to fix the problem. Chrysler has ordered a stop sale for these affected vehicles as of February 25, 2021. The recall started on March 4, 2021.

This recall is something that all drivers should know about. Under the Song-Beverly Act, car manufacturers are required to repair vehicles while they are under warranty. The law also forces manufacturers to repurchase or “buy back” (in a few instances replace the defective car) cars that the company is unable or unwilling to fix after a reasonable number of repair attempts.

If you have leased or own one of the vehicles listed above or another Jeep, Dodge, or Chrysler that has had a number of repair attempts by the dealer but the problem still exists, you need a Pasadena Lemon Lawyer to help you. Don’t let the manufacturer take advantage of you and allow you to continue to drive the defective and unsafe vehicle you are driving.
