68,000 2010 Jeep Wranglers Recalled for Fire Risk
Chrysler Group is recalling about 68,000 2010 Jeep Wrangers in the U.S. for a problem that has lead to fires in some cases.In 2010 Wranglers with automatic transmissions, a skid plate — a metal plate located under the transmission — can trap debris. Due to a change in the exhaust system for 2010 models, the skid plate is close to the vehicles’ catalytic converter.
To fix the problem, Wrangler owners will be asked to bring their vehicles to a Jeep dealership to have the skid plate replaced with a skid bar. Owners will be notified as soon as parts are available to make the change.
