Statement: Transmission Oil Cooler Line
June 6, 2013 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -
Chrysler Group will recall approximately 181,000 SUVs in the U.S. to prevent premature wear to a transmission oil cooler line.
A power-steering component may rub against the line and compromise transmission function. The issue was discovered during routine testing.
Chrysler Group is unaware of any accidents or injuries associated with this issue.
The repair, performed at no cost to customers, will see installation of a newly designed power-steering component that affords separation from the transmission oil cooler line.
If the line shows no signs of damage, it will be fitted with a protective sleeve as an additional precaution. If there is evidence of wear, the line will be replaced.
Affected customers will be notified by Chrysler Group.
The recall has implications for model-year 2012 and 2013 Jeep Wrangler SUVs. Additional vehicles are affected in Canada (18,400), Mexico (3,300) and some markets outside the NAFTA region (18,400.)
Customers who are concerned may call 1-800-853-1403.
