Dated opened: July 29, 2019

The subject model year (MY) 2015 and 2016 Jeep Wrangler are right hand drive vehicles commonly used for postal delivery in rural areas and as such have a somewhat unique use and duty cycle.

The Office of Defects Investigation (ODI) has received three Vehicle Owner Questionnaire (VOQ) reports alleging the driver's side seat belt buckle separated from the bracket that secures it to the seat frame, rendering the seat belt non-functional. All three VOQs note that the separation occurred while the seat belt was being secured, no injuries or fatalities are alleged.

ODI is opening this investigation to assess the scope, frequency and consequence of this alleged defect in the subject vehicles.

The three VOQ reports cited above can be reviewed at under the following reference numbers: 11190251, 11218472, 11231639
