The North American based automotive giant, Chrysler Group LLC, has recently announced a recall for 2.7 million Jeep vehicles, because of potentially defective fuel systems.
Chrysler and the NHTSA had a “small” argument a few days ago regarding a massive Jeep recall and, after saying that the recall won’t be conducted, Jeep has finally gave in and announced its dealers on the action. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, approximately 2.7 million Jeep vehicles will be affected by this recall and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealerships in order to get the problem with the defective fuel system solved.
“Chrysler Group’s analysis of the data confirms that these vehicles are not defective and are among the safest in the peer group. 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.”, as Chrysler said in a statement recently.
The NHTSA says that the recall will affect the 1993 – 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the 2002 to 2007 Jeep Libertys. The recall will include a visual inspection and the necessary upgrades and replacements. If you own one of the vehicles mentioned above, you should contact Jeep or Chrysler in order to find out more about this recall.
