Owners of the Jeep Wrangler have complained of problems with the heating system.
One case described the problem,
Specifically, excess sand can “improperly circulate through the vehicle’s cooling system and settle in the heater core, radiator, and oil cooling systems.” Eventually, this excess sand forms a sludge in the bottom of the radiator reservoir that can cause the vehicle’s heating and cooling systems to malfunction and fail. This makes driving in extreme heat or cold potentially dangerous or impossible.
Plaintiffs allege that sand begins to shed from the engine cylinder head as soon as someone drives the vehicle, but this issue is only discovered once the heating and cooling systems fail. Moreover, normal maintenance, such as an engine flush, does not fix this problem. This is because the sand-based sludge builds up at the bottom of the radiator, which an engine flush does not reach. Additionally, sand continues to build up in the engine once the vehicle operates again.
Plaintiffs allege that Defendants’ failure to adequately clean cylinder heads created a manufacturing defect in 2012-2017 Jeep Wranglers.
