Chrysler agrees to recall 2.7M Jeeps at risk of fire
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. The company earlier 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. The Liberty vehicle was made at Toledo Assembly Complex. The Grand Cherokee was made in a Detroit plant.
