I heard on Detroit AM newsradio that Chrysler is recalling Wrangler and Nitro vehicles.


Chrysler Recall

Washington, D.C. -- (AP) - Chrysler said Tuesday it was recalling more than 80,000 2007 Jeep Wrangler and Dodge Nitro sport utility vehicles in the United States because of possible engine stalling.
Chrysler Group, a unit of DaimlerChrysler AG, said the recall would allow dealers to reprogram a power module to remove the potential for a brief interruption of electrical power to the instrument panel and the engine.
The automaker said the power interruption could lead to a short engine stall, but said the engine would immediately restart if the vehicle was in motion.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration opened an investigation into the Wrangler in May after receiving reports of engine stalling. Chrysler said the agency has received about 180 complaints of engine stalling in Wrangler and Nitro vehicles.
There has been one accident linked to the issue, the company said, but no injuries have been reported. Chrysler will notify owners about the recall later this week and the work will be completed at no cost to consumers.

:( Yeah, I got my recall letter a couple days ago to come in and have it checked out and fixed. I wasnt shocked by it, seeing the problems I have had before. But hopefully I will get the chance to bring it in the beginning of next week.
