Jeep Recalls 39 Units Of The Imported Wrangler In India
Both the Unlimited and Rubicon variants of the SUV have been affected due to an issue of fuel supply line connector
The issue could lead to a potential fuel leak which may even lead to the fuel line connector catching fire.
The affected variants were produced from January 24 to March 17, 2020.
Jeep’s made-in-India Wrangler is unaffected by the issue as it was launched in March 2021.
As per Jeep, the faulty fuel supply line connector may crack, leading to a possible fuel leak or a risk of it catching fire. This would be fatal to people both inside and outside the vehicle and may even cause damage to property.
The affected models were manufactured between January 24, 2020 and March 17, 2020. This means the made-in-India Wrangler is safe from the recall since it went on sale only in March 2021. Jeep has started contacting the owners of the potentially affected vehicles to bring their cars to their nearest dealership/service centre for an inspection and if the part is found to be affected, only then will it be replaced. The voluntary recall will begin on November 1.
Here’s what Jeep had to say:
Nipun Mahajan, head, Jeep India, said, “Customer safety and the quality of our vehicles are the topmost priorities for us. Thanks to our continuous and stringent quality control processes this issue was identified early. Trained technicians at our authorised workshops across the country will conduct the necessary checks and procedures, at no cost to the customers.”
Jeep hasn’t specified whether there are any safety concerns regarding the vehicle’s function or driveability. We do recommend that you find out if your vehicle is eligible for the recall. If yes, then do get it inspected at the earliest to keep your vehicle in the best of health.
