WASHINGTON - The U.S. government is investigating a potential fire risk in more than 200,000 Jeep Wranglers.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration opened a preliminary investigation last week into 2007-2008 model year Wranglers with automatic transmissions.

The government has received three complaints in the U.S. alleging overheating of the vehicle's transmission. One complaint said a fire occurred. Another said transmission fluid leaked onto the catalytic converter, leading to smoke.

Chrysler says it is aware of a small number of alleged fires in China involving the Wrangler but not aware of any U.S. cases. There have been no injuries and the automaker is working with regulators in the U.S. and China on the issue.

Vehicle investigations can lead to product recalls.

Yeah... I have a suspicion that Chrysler paid money to the owners to keep their mouths shut. There were always threads on forums made, but never did the owners follow up, and never did the owners file law suits. So I would bet Chrysler shelled out some bucks in exchange for the owner's silence. There have been quite a few, but no follow ups on any of them.

Cheaper for Chrysler to pay out some hush money, than it is for them to recall 200,000 Jeeps (in the US alone).
