Chrysler agrees to recall of Grand Cherokee and Liberty Jeeps at risk of fire

Chrysler agrees to recall of Jeeps at risk of fire | Fox News

Chrysler says it has resolved its differences with the government and will recall older Jeep Grand Cherokee and Liberty SUVs that could be at risk of a fuel tank fire.

Earlier this month the company refused the government's request to recall the Jeeps. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration contended that the gas tanks could rupture if hit from the rear, causing fires. NHTSA said 51 people had died in fiery crashes.

But Chrysler says in a statement Tuesday that dealers will inspect the vehicles and upgrade the rear structure if needed to better handle low-speed crashes.

The company maintains that the vehicles aren't defective.

The government had asked Chrysler to recall 2.7 million Jeep Grand Cherokees from model years 1993 through 2004 and Jeep Libertys from 2002 through 2007

How about it saved lives like mine!
My 2002 Grand Cherokee absorbed all the shock of a lateral impact collision at 120 km/h ... fuel tank didn't burst in flame, neither the airbags deployed, I walked away with minor injuries...
How many people dies on the roads driving a Civic or even a Smart ( apparently not one of the safest )...?

51 have died, since 1993. Tylenol kills over 400 a year.
