Let’s explore this rocky road and see if Jeep can get back on track!
Jeep has issued a recall notice on select 2023 Jeep Wrangler 4xa Plug-in Hybrid models due to a possible engine shutdown. Affected models manufactured between March 17 and April 16, 2023, have engines that may suddenly shut down while the vehicle is in motion. This recall affects approximately 2,500 vehicles located in the United States and Canada.
It is important for owners of the affected models to bring their vehicles to an authorized dealership for inspection and repairs as soon as possible. The dealership will evaluate the model’s power system and repair it if necessary at no cost to the owner.
Steps to Take if Affected by the Recall
If your Jeep Wrangler 4xe SUV is affected by this recall, it’s important to take the necessary steps to ensure the safety of you and your passengers. You can contact Quill & Arrow Law LLC for help and do the following:
- Contact a local Jeep dealership and provide them with your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) for confirmation that your vehicle is within the recall parameters and if so, what should be done next.
- Make sure you bring all recalled parts from the Jeep Wrangler 4xe with you so that these can be inspected at the dealership before replacement parts are installed in their place. At some dealerships, it may be possible to have the parts replaced on-site while scheduling an appointment could also potentially work better depending on availability.
- If you choose to have the recalled parts repaired outside of a Jeep dealership, it’s essential that any repairs are confirmed as being compliant with all applicable safety standards for warranty coverage reasons and passenger safety assurance.
- All recalls related service visits should be documented in writing and kept for personal records in case such documentation is requested from automakers or other parties in conjunction with ownership claims or warranty coverage requirements down the road.
Taking proper action if affected by a recall can save lives, minimize additional risks due to malfunctioning vehicles and give individuals peace of mind that their vehicle is operating safely and within its optimal capabilities again soon after taking applicable steps according to manufacturer requirements for fixing recalled products promptly – for the benefit of everyone on-board!
Based on the findings of the investigation, there is a potential for certain 2023 Jeep Wrangler 4xe vehicles to enter a security state that ultimately leads to an unexpected engine shutdown. Vehicles impacted by this recall will receive a software update and further diagnosis if necessary from a certified technician at an authorized dealer.
It is important for customers to contact their local dealers regarding any concerns they may have or questions they may have regarding their vehicles. Additionally, customers should follow up with the dealer after repairs are completed as necessary.
