Chrysler has announced it will recall 57,885 Jeep Wranglers, including all from the model year 2020-2023.

An unnecessary stud on the frame might puncture the fuel tank in a crash, Chrysler said.

A resulting fuel leak could increase the risk of fire, according to a U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration statement.

The voluntary recall also includes Wranglers made as far back as October 2019.

Chrysler said owners would be notified about the recall by letter by May 12.

In December 2022, Chrysler recalled 63,000 Wranglers for vehicles that suddenly would stop on drivers.

The Detroit automaker’s Jeep recall is only the latest to affect consumers this month.

Recalls published by the National Highway Traffic Administration indicate more than 807,000 vehicles from Hyundai, Kia, Mercedes-Benz, and General Motors were on recall lists this month.

Dealers will inspect and — if necessary — remove the frame stud and apply paint free of charge.

Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on May 12, 2023.

Owners may contact Chrysler’s customer service at 800- 853-1403. Chrysler’s number for this recall is 28A.
