WASHINGTON - Chrysler is recalling more than 20,450 model-year 2010-2011 Jeep Wrangler vehicles because of a potential steering problem.
The recall covers Wranglers manufactured from July 12 through Sept. 10 of last year. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, some vehicles may experience a degradation of fastener torque for various front and rear axle attachments to the chassis module. This could result in noise, or ultimately, degradation in steering and handling. Eventually, this condition could lead to loss of directional control.
Dealers will re-torque all 19 fasteners to the maximum residual torque values. There will be no charge for this service.
Vehicle owners can reach Chrysler at (800) 853-1403.
