DETROIT (AP) — A company that makes aftermarket floor liners for the Jeep Wrangler is recalling them because they can get stuck under the pedals and cause unintended acceleration.
Quadratec Inc. is recalling approximately 15,836 driver's side floor liners sold between May 2012 and February 2013. They were used in Jeep Wranglers from the 2007 through 2013 model years.
In documents filed with the federal government, Quadratec says the anchor point for the floor liner can tear, particularly when it's exposed to high temperatures. If that happens, the liner can shift forward and hit the pedals.
The company isn't aware of any injuries caused by the problem, which was discovered when owners returned defective liners.
Quadratec will notify owners and either exchange their liners or provide a kit to secure the liners.
Owners may contact Quadratec at 1-800-463-2998 or email the company at info(at)quadratec.com.
