Recall Up Date: Jeep to Recall its 2.7 Million Vehicles

Chrysler Group has just announced that it will be recalling 2.7 million Jeeps the company originally refused to recall. When the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration originally issued the voluntary recall request, Chryser refused, saying the affected Jeeps met all applicable safety standards relating to fuel-system integrity and that incidents involving the vehicles “occur less than once for every million years of vehicle operation.”

The recall includes 1993-2004 Jeep Grand Cherokees and 2002-2007 Jeep Libertys for an issue with potentially defective fuel systems. The potentially expensive recall will include a visual inspection and, if necessary, an upgrade to the rear structure that Chrysler says will help the SUVs “better manage crash forces in low-speed impacts.
Though Chrysler won a court case in 1996 when it refused to issue a recall on 91,000 vehicles, with more widespread coverage of recalls today, a continued fight may not have been in the company image’s best interests.
