UAE Chrysler dealer announces 'voluntary recall'

UAE Chrysler dealer announces 'voluntary recall'

A “voluntary safety recall” of Jeep Wrangler vehicles in the UAE has been announced, Arabian Business has learnt.

This follows US reports on Monday that Chrysler is to recall 288,968 Jeep Wrangler vehicles made between 2006 and 2010, due to a potential brake fluid leak.

Trading Enterprises, part of the Al-Futtaim Group and a distributor of Chrysler vehicles in the UAE, told Arabian Business that it has implemented precautionary measures and has asked all UAE owners of Jeep Wranglers to bring their vehicles in for inspection.

“Chrysler will conduct a voluntary safety recall on all potentially affected vehicles to inspect and remove potential areas of liner contact with the brake line. The improvement will be completed at no cost to the customer,” a spokesperson from Trading Enterprises told Arabian Business in a statement.

“Our after-sales department is monitoring the situation and so far it seems like the Middle East region is not affected. If there are affected vehicles in the Middle East, we expect the numbers to be minimal,” the spokesperson added.

The US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration also reported that Chrysler was recalling 284,831 Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town and Country minivans made between 2008 and 2009 due to a wiring problem which may cause a fire inside the sliding door.

Chrysler said that the flaws highlighted in the recalls, which are due to start later this month, had not caused any crashes or injuries.
