2011 Jeep Wrangler Recalls
The passenger frontal air bag assembly is deployed by an inflator which contains propellant that makes the air bag deploy. This propellant may degrade over time, especially when exposed to humidity and temperature cycling. As a result, the inflator may rupture on deployment, which can send metal shrapnel through the air bag, striking vehicle occupants. This could result in serious injury or death.
For right hand drive vehicles: the driver's frontal air bag may fail to deploy as needed during an accident because of an electrical contact issue in the steering wheel. This would increase risk of occupant injury in a crash.
The heated outside rear view mirrors may have an electrical short. This can cause a fire hazard.
2008 - 2012 Wrangler models equipped with right hand drive may have a condition where the driver's front airbag may not deploy as expected and/or the airbag warning light may illuminate.
Right hand drive vehicles, most often used by the Post Office, may illuminate the airbag warning light due to an electrical issue in the steering column.
Steering capability may be lost due to a missing or incorrectly installed steering column pivot rivet. Loss of steering capability increases the risk of a crash.
Fasteners securing the front and rear axles may loosen. A clunking noise may develop, which could be followed by degradation of the steering and handling characteristics, increasing the risk of a crash.
