Recall Alert: Jeep RHD Jeep Wranglers

Statement: Dust Shields

May 11, 2013 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -

Chrysler Group LLC will recall approximately 5,330 right-hand-drive SUVs to install dust shields.

The vehicles, model-year 2008-2012 Jeep Wranglers, are used primarily for daily mail delivery in rural areas.

The shields are designed to prevent dust buildup on a steering-column-mounted electrical connector. Buildup may cause circuit fatigue and compromise airbag function.

Investigators discovered connectors in the affected vehicles sustained buildup more rapidly because of their rigorous duty cycle. Chrysler Group also will replace the connectors with components that are more resistant to dust.

Chrysler Group is unaware of any associated accidents or injuries. The issue has not been observed in any other vehicle population.

Affected customers will be notified directly. All are in the U.S.

Those who are concerned about their vehicles may contact their dealers or call 1-800-853-1403.

Nitro Year: 2007 (1 of 91,815 sold in 07)
