2010 Jeep Wrangler Problems

Miscellaneous -- Verified

Water can leak near the A-pillar, at the front edge of the driver and passenger side doors. An improved seal is available.

Drive Train -- Verified

Leaks at the front and/or rear differential pinion seal and from the transfer case are common. Leakage from the transfer case normally occurs at the case-mating surfaces and require removal of the transfer case to reseal.

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

Loose or worn suspension and steering components can cause a wobble or shaking in the steering wheel. It may happen at a certain speed and subside as the vehicle accelerates through the range. Tire balance can contribute to this as well.

Brakes -- Verified

Due to warped front brake rotors or variations in the thickness of the rotors, brake pulsations may develop. The best method to reduce pulsations is to use an "On the Car" brake lathe (as long as the rotors are suitable for turning). "On the Car" equipment can correct variations (or "runout") in the rotor surfaces because it also corrects variations in other components (e.g. the hub).

2010 Jeep Wrangler Recalls (Recent)

Body, Interior & Misc., May 7, 2013

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The clockspring is a coil of wire located behind the steering wheel, it allows the steering wheel to turn and still maintain the electrical connection between the steering column and the rotating steering wheel. Certain right hand drive models are being recalled because the circuit inside the clockspring could break. This could result in illumination of the airbag warning light and/or no-deployment of the driver's front airbag in the event of a crash. Dealers will replace the clockspring and add a steering wheel dust shield to correct this concern.

Body, Interior & Misc., November 1, 2011

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Right hand drive vehicles, most often used by the Post Office, may be equipped with a steering column mounted clockspring assembly that could experience a compromised electrical circuit resulting in illumination of the airbag warning light. In the event of a crash, if the airbag warning light is illuminated, the driver's airbag may not deploy as expected. Failure of the driver's airbag to deploy increases the risk of personal injury. Dealers will perform the necessary repairs to correct this concern. The Chrysler recall number is L37.

Chrysler has recalled certain 2010 Dodge Nitro, Dodge Ram, Jeep Liberty, and Jeep Wrangler models because they may have been built with an improperly formed master cylinder to hydraulic control unit (HCU) brake tube assembly end flare.
