Owners of Jeep Wrangler Vehicles Get Buy Back from Chrysler

 Owners of Jeep Wrangler Vehicles Get Buyback from ManufacturerOwners of defective Jeep Wrangler vehicles recently hired Johnson Attorneys Group to negotiate with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles to buy back their vehicles due to transmission issues, overheating, and the notorious death wobble.

These are just some of the issues that our clients have dealt with in their 2019 to 2023 Jeep Wranglers. The top problems Jeep owners have reported to federal safety regulators are issues with the electrical system, steering, suspension, engine, and power train.

However, there are also numerous recalls for issues such as high-pressure fuel pump failures, rear-view cameras, seat belts, the fuel tank, the clutch pressure plate overheating, and more.

Furthermore, owners of the 2021 to 2023 Jeep Wrangler 4xe have experienced a loss of communication that could cause the engine to shut down. This prompted a recall for nearly 70,000 vehicles in models equipped with 2.0L Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle engines, according to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration.

Jeep Wrangler Buy Back

Johnson Attorneys Group recently settled the following cases on behalf of our clients who told us they no longer felt safe in their Wrangler.  Here are the circumstances that enabled our clients to qualify for a buyback:

  • The 2021 Jeep Wrangler Limited kept stalling and had transmission issues. The owner took the vehicle to the dealership for repairs four times and it spent a total of 45 days in the shop before they reached out to the manufacturer to request they buy back the defective Jeep. However, after no response, the owner was concerned because it was a major safety issue. They called Johnson Attorneys Group for help. A few months later, Stellantis settled the case and bought back the Jeep Wrangler.
  • Meanwhile, the owner of a 2019 Jeep Wrangler was experiencing a phenomenon known as the “death wobble” in her vehicle. After four repairs and 16 days in the repair shop, they called our law firm to negotiate a buyback for the defective vehicle. This model year has nearly 400 complaints to the NHTSA about steering problems related to the death wobble.
  • Finally, a 2022 Jeep Wrangler kept overheating finally gave out while a family was on vacation. The owner took the vehicle to the shop three times for the same repairs. But after the breakdown ruined their family trip, and spent 49 days in the shop, the owner had enough and reached out to our lemon law firm for help.  The owner got the manufacturer to reluctantly buy back the vehicle. Find out more about the 2022 model and its problems on the NHTSA website.

There are certainly many other issues experienced by Jeep Wrangler owners that created safety concerns or diminished the value or enjoyment of the vehicle. Some of the other issues owners of Jeep Wranglers have dealt with include explosive Takata airbags, transmission fluid leaks, stability control, visibility and wipers, and unintended acceleration.
