Steering Shaft Welding Problem Can Cause a Loss of Control

The 2018 Wrangler is being recalled to repair a steering shaft weld that can create a dangerous driving situaion.

Engineers found the Wranglers have incomplete long seam welds that can cause a split, and combined with high steering wheel torque, the steering wheel will lose center positioning.

Drivers will also notice a lack of steering response, although Fiat-Chrysler (FCA) doesn’t believe the defect is responsible for any accidents. Yet.
