Chrysler gives in to calls for Jeep recall

Relenting to pressure from the government, the Chrysler Group decided 0n June 18 to agree to the request for the recall of 2.7 million Jeeps on account of their alleged fuel tank design defects.

Saying the company places high priority on its customers’ concerns, Chrysler announced it would recall 1993 to 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokees and 2002 to 2007 Jeep Libertys. The company plans to coordinate with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)  to provide additional safety implements to safeguard passengers when using these vehicles.

According to the deal between Chrysler and the NHTSA, Chrysler won’t be required to repair all 2.7 million Jeeps; rather, it will mount a factory trailer hitch so there would be less impact in cases of low-speed, rear-end collisions.

Had Chrysler not made the recall by the deadline of June 18 , it would have been subjected to high-profile public hearings.

Sadly, many people in Appleton are victimized in car accidents caused by defective vehicles. If this has happened to you, call the legal team of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. at 800-242-2874 to explore your legal options.
