2010 JK Skid plate issue

NEW YORK (MarketWatch) — Chrysler Group is recalling about 67,900 Jeep Wranglers in the U.S. because of a risk of fires, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said on its Website.
About 6,000 other Jeeps also are being recalled in Canada, 1,500 in Mexico and about 11,000 in other countries for a total of about 87,000, the Associated Press reported Saturday, citing a company spokesman.
The recalls affect only 2010-model Wranglers with automatic transmissions. The transmission skid plate, which is close to the catalytic converter, can collect debris and can ignite without warning, NHTSA said on its site, which said Chrysler reported the recall on May 15.
Chrysler /quotes/zigman/214994/quotes/nls/fiaty FIATY +1.90% said it will replace the skid plate with a skid bar free of charge.
Chrysler knows of at least 14 complaints of fires caused by the problem with 2010 Wranglers, the AP reported, adding the company said it doesn’t know of any injuries.
AP reported that the NHTSA also checked Wranglers from the 2007 through 2012 model years and determined that only the 2010 models had the debris problem.
