Jeep starts Recall for failed Frame Welds on Wrangler JLs

The new Jeep Wrangler JL owners have been complaining about frame welds for months, and some have even experienced frame failures at a critical suspension mounting bracket. Now Fiat Chrysler is issuing a recall due to risk of a ?vehicle crash without prior warning.? Here?s why this is such a big deal.


Jeep will issue a recall and stop-sale on some 2018 and 2019 Jeep Wranglers because a weld meant to hold the track bar bracket to the frame might fail, ?potentially resulting in the bracket separating from the frame,? and possibly causing a crash, Fiat Chrysler says in the safety recall advanced communication shown below.


Many JL owners have complained about the quality of the welds on their vehicle and here's a summary of the complaints:


Poor Track Bar Bracket welds that have broken and will cause complete loss of steering.


Porous welds exceeding safety standards that could lead to catastrophic failure.


Slag on nearly every weld on the frame which paint will not adhere to. This will eventually cause rusting of the frame at the welds leading to potential catastrophic failure.


Lack of Penetration on some welds that could lead to catastrophic failure


Over penetration on some welds that could lead to catastrophic failure


Overweld or weld drip on several welds


Weld Splash on various part of the frame that will result in lack of long term paint adherence and increased likelihood of rusting of the frame.?
