Chrysler has announced the recall of 180,131 Jeep Wrangler automobiles of the 2012 and 2013 model years. At issue is the fact that the vehicles’ transmission oil cooler line may develop a hole as a result of continued wear by the power steering line. This can cause the vehicles to emanate transmission fluid, which can impede the capabilities of the transmission as a whole. Thus, the threat of a crash becomes more apparent. Free replacement of the power steering return tube assembly will be offered by dealers once the recall begins this July. At that point, owners should be on the lookout for a notification from Chrysler.
