In all, there have been five recalls since the Gladiator came out in 2019. The first, in 2019, was for driveshaft U-joints having not been greased at the factory. Jeep replaced the driveshafts of those vehicles affected.

By 2020, the NHTSA issued three recalls. The first one, in March, was for fracturing friction plates in manual transmission-equipped Jeeps. Then in April, a software issue was the second recall. This was over a software problem that kept the rear backup camera image displayed after shifting out of Reverse. A software update corrected the problem. The third recall was in September for faulty seat belt retractors. Jeep replaced tensioners of those affected free of charge.

For 2021, only one recall was issued for Jeep vehicles. This one was also for fracturing the inner friction plate in manual Jeeps. But it was caused by overheating of the clutch assembly. The fix was to update the software to reduce engine torque when temperatures rise and replacement of the inner pressure plate.
