Chrysler says that certain model year 2018 Jeep Wrangler vehicles are being recalled because they may have been manufactured with a potentially serious seat defect.

What's the problem?

The rear under body ladder rail on the affected vehicles may corrode, possibly reducing the strength of the rear floor pan and causing the left rear seat mount to become loose.

If the floor pan strength is reduced and/or the rear seat mount becomes loose, the rear seat may detach in a crash, increasing the risk of passenger injury.

What happens next?

The remedy for this recall is still under development. Owners of the impacted Jeep Wrangler vehicles will receive initial notification from Chrysler about the recall beginning in early June 2018.
