The UAE Ministry of Economy and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Middle East have issued a recall of nearly 600 Jeep Wranglers vehicles due to defective frame welding.

The 596 affected vehicles were manufactured between May and July 2018. A faulty weld in the track bar suspension at the front of the vehicle can cause it to detach from the frame and reduce the steering response.

All repairs will be completed free of charge.
