Recall for 2021-2023 model year Jeep Wrangler 4xe Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicles strands dangerous vehicles behind repair delays
Lieff Cabraser is investigating complaints that a recent safety recall for 2021-2023 Jeep Wrangler 4xe Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs) has left owners and lessees with vehicles they cannot charge or even store at home.
The recall has warned drivers that the high voltage batteries in their Jeeps could fail and catch fire, and instructed consumers not to plug-in their vehicles or store them in a garage or near other vehicles. As a result, owners and lessees have been forced to not drive and to sequester their vehicles to try to minimize the fire danger.
As per NHTSA’s recall notice, due to the danger of sudden battery discharge, “Customers are advised to refrain from recharging these vehicles and not to park them inside of buildings or structures, or near other vehicles until the vehicle has the final repair completed.”
If you own or lease an affected Jeep Wrangler, we urge you to contact a consumer protection lawyer at Lieff Cabraser today to learn about your rights and potential recovery.
