Chrysler Group is recalling about 68,000 Jeep Wrangers in the U.S. for a problem that has lead to fires in some cases.

In 2010 Wranglers with automatic transmissions, a skid plate -- a metal plate located under the transmission -- can trap debris. Due to a change in the exhaust system for 2010 models, the skid plate is close to the vehicles' catalytic converter.


To fix the problem, Wrangler owners will be asked to bring their vehicles to a Jeep dealership to have the skid plate replaced with a skid bar. Owners will be notified as soon as parts are available to make the change.

It is bad enough when it is found after the car came off the assembly line. Even worse. when it is found after the sale of the car. High costs, damage to reputation. It is sad that this happened. But this is an invaluable experience, I think that the likelihood of such problems or similar in the future - is close to zero. I hope that later it is still well served for Jeep and Chrysler.

The headline on this article is incorrect. The recall is for 2010 Wranglers, not 2012.
