Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling 3,427 model year 2020 Jeep Gladiators.
The rear driveshafts may have been incorrectly assembled without grease in the monoblock joint.
A joint without grease may overheat and seize, possibly causing the driveshaft to fracture, resulting in a sudden loss of drive power.
If the driveshaft completely separates from the vehicle it may become a road hazard. Either of these situations can increase the risk of a crash.
What to do
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will replace the driveshaft free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin October 18, 2019.
Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at (800) 853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is V95.
