Chrysler Won’t Recall Vehicles After Request
MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – Chrysler says it will not recall 2.7 million Jeep vehicles, despite a request from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The agency had raised concerns about the safety of fuel tanks on Jeep Grand Cherokees from the 1993 to 2004 model years and Jeep Liberties from 2004 to 2007. But Chrysler says it’s done a thorough investigation of the vehicles, and believes they are safe, and not defective.
Chrysler says they believe NHTSA’s initial conclusions are based on incomplete analysis of the underlying data. A statement from Chrysler states the vehicles involved meet or exceed all applicable federal safety standards.
There’s been no comment yet from NHTSA.
