Quadratec, Inc. is recalling certain aftermarket accessory, driver-side Ultimate Floor Liners.

The liners are for use in 2007-2013 Jeep Wranglers. The anchor point for the affected floor liners may tear during use, particularly when exposed to high temperatures. The tearing may allow the floor liner to shift forward.

If the liner shifts forward it may impede the operation of the accelerator and possibly lead to unintended acceleration, which may increase the risk of a crash.

The floor liners included in this recall were sold from May 1, 2012 through February 14, 2013. Affected part numbers are: 14254.0301 07, 14254.0301 08, 14254.0301Q, 14254.0302 07, 14254.0302 08, 14254.0302Q, 14254.0303 07, 14254.0303 08, 14254.0303Q, 14254.0309 07, 14254.0309 08, and 14254.0309Q.

Quadratec will notify owners of the recall and and either exchange the liners for new ones or provide a hook guard kit to help secure the driver-side mat, free of charge.
