Chrysler Gives into NHTSA's Request and Recalls 2.7 Million Jeeps

Chrysler has announced the recall of 2.7 million Jeep Grand Cherokee and Liberty models.


Earlier this month Chrysler received a recall request from NHTSA that requested that the automaker recall 2.7 million Jeeps. Chrysler responded with an absolute no following NHTSA’s investigation into fire risks on Jeep Grand Cherokee models built from 1993 to 2004 and Jeep Liberty models built from 2002 to 2007.
Chrysler has no changed its decision and has issued a voluntary recall. Chrysler will now conduct a visual inspection of the vehicle and if necessary, provide an upgrade to the rear structure of the vehicle to better manage crash forces in low-speed impacts.

Chrysler still maintains that the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Liberty models in the recall are still not defective. “Nonetheless, Chrysler Group recognizes that this matter has raised concerns for its customers and wants to take further steps, in coordination with NHTSA, to provide additional measures to supplement the safety of its vehicles.”
