It's also recalling 221,000 Jeep Wranglers worldwide from 2012 and 2013 to fix transmission fluid leaks, according to documents posted Thursday on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website.

For Wranglers with 3.6-liter V-6 engines, Chrysler says a power steering fluid line can wear a hole in the transmission oil cooler line. The SUVs can leak fluid, damaging automatic transmissions. Dealers will inspect the lines for free and replace them or install a protective sleeve. The recall begins in July.

No crashes or injuries have been reported in either case, Chrysler spokesman Eric Mayne said Thursday.

The Wrangler recall includes 181,000 vehicles in the U.S. as well as 18,400 in Canada, 3,300 in Mexico and another 18,400 outside North America.

Concerned customers in either case can call Chrysler at (800) 853-1403.

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.
