Jeep Shifts Gears on Grand Cherokee, Liberty Recall Request
Previously, Chrysler had refused a request from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to recall 2.7 million Grand Cherokee and Liberty models due to fuel system failures in rear-impact collisions that could potentially result in a fire, increasing the risk of injury to occupants. According to the automaker, its own analysis of the data shows the Grand Cherokee and Liberty to be among the safest models when compared with its direct competitors, and that the vehicles are not defective.
The NHTSA could have ordered Chrysler to conduct a mandatory recall campaign. In recalling the vehicles voluntarily, the automaker said it "realizes this matter has raised concerns for its customers," emphasizing that the company "regards safety as a paramount concern and does not compromise on the safety of our customers and their families."
If you own one of the affected vehicles and have questions for Chrysler, please call 1-800-334-9200.
