Jeep Gladiator, Wrangler Recalled for Clutch Problem
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is recalling about 33,200 2018-2020 Jeep Wranglers and 2020 Jeep Gladiators with manual transmissions over concerns that the clutch can overheat, increasing the risk of a fire and/or crash, according to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
The clutch pressure plate on affected Jeeps can overheat due to friction and break, which could damage the transmission case, causing a fire, loss of driving ability, and/or a crash.
