Jeep has propelled a recall campaign to fix an issue it revealed with the third-generation Wrangler, however, a particular unit of Jeeps are influenced by the issue. The recall applies solely to the right-hand drive off-roaders the company made for the United States Postal Service (USPS).
Jeep made a right-hand drive Wrangler between the 2011 and 2018 model years, as indicated by Roadshow, and it offered them to USPS, who utilized the SUVs to deliver mail in rural areas of America. The recall notice sent to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) clarifies the seatbelt buckle on the driver's side (that is, the place the front traveler sits in a standard, American-spec Wrangler) can wind up confined from the body because of too much wear and tear.
The fix is basic: Post offices that have Wranglers in their fleet should stop by their nearest Jeep dealer and get another seatbelt buckle installed for free. The recall covers 11,463 vehicles, however, Jeep brought up just about 1% of them genuinely need another buckle.
Left-hand drive models are excluded in the recall despite the fact that the seatbelt buckle is the equivalent, paying little respect to which side of the dashboard the steering wheel sticks out from. It seems like buckling and unbuckling the seat belt hundreds of times every day, as a working postal carrier is inclined to do, is the thing that wears out the buckle. Drivers who get in and out of their Wrangler all the time would do well to check the state of their buckle from time to time and visit a dealership if something feels loose or broken.
