    2010 Wranglers with automatic transmissions affected


    DETROIT -
    Chrysler is recalling nearly 87,000 Jeep Wranglers in the U.S., Canada and elsewhere due to a risk of fires.

    U.S. safety regulators say the recall affects only Wranglers from the 2010 model year with automatic transmissions.

    Debris can get caught between a transmission plate and the catalytic converter, causing a fire.

    Chrysler will fix the problem free of charge by replacing the plate with a bar so debris doesn't get trapped.
