2017 Jeep Wrangler: Cheap Gas Isn’t An Excuse

By  | 

Just because the price of gas is low right now this shouldn’t be an excuse to waste it. However this is what has happened with the 2017 Jeep Wrangler, which is at the centre of a recall.

359 units of the 2017 Jeep Wrangler are involved in a recall due to a potential fuel leak and these are vehicles that were made between 1 November and 2 November 2016.

The units of the 2017 Jeep Wrangler that are involved in the recall have a control valve that is broken in the fuel tank and this means that should the vehicle be involved in a rollover crash, fuel might leak. The issue could also lead to debris getting into the tank or it could allow overfilling.

Vehicles that are affected will have the fuel tank inspected and replaced if necessary, along with the fuel pump. The replacements are set to begin on 2 January 2017.

Luckily Jeep found out about the issue early on so not that many vehicles had been involved. The carmaker kept vehicles at the factory that had faulty parts and 448 of them were shown to be involved that hadn’t been sent out to customers.

This isn’t the first time that Jeep has suffered at the hands of a recall as 18, 308 units of the 2016 and 2017 Jeep Wrangler was recalled due to issues with the front impact sensor in October. In May around 400,000 units suffered from an issue with the airbags.

Do you own the Jeep Wrangler and have you suffered at the hands on one of the recalls? Let us know.
