Jeep Recalling 18,000 2018-19 Wranglers Due to Faulty Frame Weld

FCA

Jeep is on the clock for a recall affecting 18,000 2018 and 2019 Wranglers due to a faulty frame weld.

According to the recall, the affected vehicles carry a front track bar with a faulty weld that misaligns the axles, resulting in the panhard bar separating the axle from the frame. No injuries or deaths have been reported as a result.

Fortunately, not all affected Wranglers have been sold, but a stop sale order has been mandated by Fiat Chrysler to all dealerships until the issue is resolved.

One 2018 Wrangler owner posted a Youtube video showing his track bar disassembling from the vehicle’s frame.

For more information, visit the NHTSA recall page or Mopar to learn if your vehicle is affected. All affected owners will be notified through snail mail. Repairs are scheduled to start in Q4 2018.
