NHTSA issues recall, Chrysler cancels it image

The Chrysler Group has canceled a recall issued by the NHTSA which was affecting a total of 2.7 million Jeep vehicles.

The North American based automaker Chrysler has responded to a safety recall request from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, saying that the company has no plans of recalling a total of 2.7 million Jeep vehicles.

“The company does not agree with NHTSA’s conclusions and does not intend to recall the vehicles cited in the investigation. We believe NHTSA’s initial conclusions are based on an incomplete analysis of the underlying data, and we are committed to continue working with the Agency to resolve this disagreement”, as the Chrysler Group said in a statement.

The NHTSA has issued a recall involving approximately 2.7 million Jeep vehicles, including the Jeep Liberty, made between 2002 and 2007 (or Jeep Cherokee as it is locally known) and the Grand Cherokee, made between 1993 and 2004, because of safety concerns related to the fuel systems. There is an apparent risk of fuel leaks and fire, when the affected vehicles are hit from behind so if you own such a vehicle, always check your rearview mirror, because the Chrysler Group has no intention of investigating or solving the problem.
