Recall: Keep those ’18 Wrangler doors closed

by David Zatz on

Speaking of tiny recalls: Jeep is recalling a surprisingly small number of four-door 2018 Wranglers, because the passenger-side rear door latch may not be in the right place, preventing the door from latching properly. That means it could swing open on a hard turn.

Recall #UB6 affects just 52 Wranglers sold in the US, some of which may still be in dealer hands. The recall will launch by the end of the year.  Covered vehicles were made for just three days — September 26, 27, and 28, 2018.

Based on the recall notices, the problem was the latch reinforcement supplied to FCA; the company discovered the problem itself, on October 16, during an engineering evaluation. As of October 30, 2018, the company had not seen the problem in the field. The repair consists of replacing the right rear door assembly.  The official recall notice (NHTSA #18V-786) has the schedule for notification at December 28, but FCA has often notified customers long before the scheduled time.
