WranglerAnother Jeep Recall - This Time For the Wrangler
Posted by mike on 2002/4/4 0:00:00 (767) reads

95,000 Jeep Wrangler sport utility vehicles are being recalled due to a problem with the ignition.

The Chrysler arm of DaimlerChrysler AG will recall 645,000 vehicles, including 545,000 minivans and 95,000 Jeeps, in two separate recalls, a federal safety agency said on Tuesday.

The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Chrysler would recall Dodge Caravan, Plymouth Voyager and Chrysler Town & Country minivans built between June 1996 and October 1998 to fix a piece of sound insulation that can fall into the rear seat belt assembly. The agency said the insulation could cause the seat belts to not work properly.

The other Chrysler recall involves 95,000 Jeep Wrangler sport utility vehicles built between June 2000 and December 2001. NHTSA said the Wrangler's ignition switch can short out if exposed to water and dirt, creating the chance of a fire.

Is this really a recall??????? Last July I was caught in a quick shower of rain and put the top on my wrangler immediately, however, when I drove it home the headlights were on but I had not turned them on...By that evening it caught fire, we pulled out the fuse to the hazard switch but not quick enough to prevent the massive melting in the steering column, and my dealer made me pay for the labor and parts to fix the jeep. I reported it to the Highway Saftey people but never got anything back.....

I am owner of a 2000 Jeep Wrangler Sport, I have not received any notification from Daimler-Chrysler or my dealer. Do you know which serial numbers are included in that recall? I would appreciate any help. Thanks.

Regards,

Dennis

V, you should take up your case with DC, sounds to me like they should reimburse you for your rig!
