Chrysler, located in Detroit, is recalling nearly 87,000 Jeep Wranglers in the U.S. and Canada due to a risk of fires. Safety regulators claim that the fire risk only affects 2010 model Wranglers with automatic transmissions. It is believed that debris can get caught between a transmission plate and the catalytic converter, potentially causing a fire.

 

Chrysler states that there have been at least 14 complaints of fire due to this malfunction, but purports to have no knowledge of related injuries.
