2012 - 2013 Wrangler Recall

To whom it applies:

The 2012-2013 Wrangler has a power-steering fluid tube that can puncture a hole in an adjacent transmission oil tube and lead to a total loss of transmission oil, NHTSA filings said.

The recall affects 181,131 Wranglers equipped with automatic transmissions. A tube carrying fluid for the power-steering system can be in "hard contact" with the transmission oil cooler tube, which was switched from steel to a softer aluminum starting in the 2012 model year, Chrysler said. In August 2012, Chrysler fitted rubber parts to cushion the tubes and later redesigned the power-steering tube to be farther away from the transmission tube, which was fitted with a sleeve, starting in February 2013. The problem has occurred in at least 81 customer vehicles.

Starting in July, dealers will replace the power-steering tube system with the latest design and fit sleeves on the transmission oil cooler tube. If damaged, that tube will also be replaced.

Owners can call Chrysler at 1-800-247-9753 for more information.
