A lawsuit filed on June 12, in Detroit's U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, alleges that Fiat Chrysler has knowledge that the steering wheel of 2015-2018 Jeep Wranglers can shake violently at highway speeds due to their solid front axle.
In a statement, FCA U.S. said it cannot comment on its allegations at this time, but "We note, however, that any manufacturer vehicle equipped with a solid axle can experience steering system vibration and, if experienced, it is routinely corrected."
According to the suit, the so-called “death wobble” occurs because the solid front axle cannot absorb bumps and vibrations as efficiently as a vehicle with a front suspension that allows each wheel to move independently.
Drivers experience an "uncontrollable side-to-side shaking of a Jeep’s front-end steering components and, by extension, its steering wheel," the suit alleges.
The lawsuit, filed on behalf of a New Jersey resident who owns a 2018 Jeep Wrangler, accuses the company of offering drivers a temporary but ineffective solution by replacing the steering damper if the vehicle is under warranty, although in this case, it was replaced three times in six months and the Jeep's front end still shook.
Drivers have complained about Wrangler steering problems to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration since 2012.
