Chrysler is recalling 67,872 model-year 2010 Jeep Wrangler SUVs equipped with an automatic transmission, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

In the affected vehicles, debris could collect in the transmission skid plate, which is near the catalytic converter. The debris could catch fire, increasing the risk of injury.

Jeep will notify owners later this month, and dealers will replace the skid plate with a skid bar at no charge. Owners can call Chrysler at 800-853-1403 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.

Problems like this expose a lack of imagination. Who designs something like this? Someone who has not spent enough time under a truck which has been off road. How many other places on cars collect salt and rust out because the designers didn't imagine the vehicle in real-conditions use?

Jeep Wranglers have been catching on fire for years, and Chrysler has been sweeping it under their giant corporate rug for years. The 07 Wranglers were recalled in 09 for a fire risk due to the transmission, Chryslers answer to the re call was to install a warning light that is supposed to warn the driver of a fire. The problem with this is they did not correct the cause of the fires, just installed a warning light, and the warning lights don't work. I bought my 07 Wrangler in 2010, it was recalled and the warning light was installed, I knew nothing about the risk of fire, or the warning light that was installed. In February my Wrangler caught on fire in my drive way, exploded and caught my house on fire, no warning lights went off. The inspectors determined that the fire started in my transmission, however they are inconclusive as to what caused my transmission to catch on fire. Wranglers are a defective vehicle that should be taken off the road
