The redesigned 2007 Jeep Wrangler has been a significant sales success for Chrysler. Too bad it’s back in the news for a recall. Tuesday, Chrysler announced that 80,895 2007-model-year Jeep Wranglers and Dodge Nitros will be recalled to fix faulty power modules that could lead to engine stalls.
Wrangler owners had complained of engines stalling at highway speeds, which is a significant problem. In February, Chrysler recalled the same two models, along with many others in the Chrysler family, for faulty antilock brake software.
Owners should receive notification in the next week, and Chrysler will reprogram the power module at no cost.
For more information, owners can call Chrysler at 800-853-1403.
