2010 jeep wrangler skid plate recall

Chrysler has announced the recall of nearly 70,000 Jeep Wrangler vehicles from the 2010 model year equipped with an automatic transmission. The transmission skid plate, which is close to the catalytic converter, can collect debris that can consequently ignite without warning.

Debris igniting under the vehicle can cause a fire.

Dealers will replace the skid plate with a skid bar at no cost. The recall is expected to begin during May 2012.

Owners may contact Chrysler at 800-853-1403.
