Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is recalling approximately 18,055 2018-2019 Jeep Wrangler compact SUVs for a potential steering issue.
Specifically, the front track bar brackets may be improperly welded, causing the brackets to separate from the frame. This, in turn, can reduce steering capability. An unanticipated inability to steer properly can increase the likelihood of a collision.
To remedy the matter, FCA will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and repair the track bar bracket welds, as necessary, at no cost to owners. The recall begins Nov. 17.
Owners can reach FCA customer service at (800) 853-1403. FCA's number for this recall is UA5.
