Chrysler Caves, Agrees to Recall 2.7 Million Jeeps

susan_harr3 years ago

Chrysler has formally agreed to recall 2.7 million Jeep Liberty and Grand Cherokee vehicles that are prone to fired in rear-end crashes. The announcement from Chrysler comes just hours shy of a government deadline forcing the automaker to accept or refuse the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) request for recall. The company publicly rejected the request earlier this month.

“Chrysler Group will conduct a voluntary campaign with respect to the vehicles in question that, in addition to a visual inspection of the vehicle will, if necessary, provide an upgrade to the rear structure of the vehicle to better manage crash forces in low-speed impacts,” Chrysler press release.

Jeep Liberty and Grand Cherokee Vehicles Recalled for Defective Design, Fire Hazard

The recall involves 2002-2007 model year Jeep Liberty and 1993-2004 model year Grand Cherokee vehicles which the NHTSA has called defective due to their propensity to catch fire in rear-end collisions.

The NHTSA has linked 15 deaths and 46 injuries to fires caused by rear-end collisions in these Jeep models.
