CAS demands recall of 1993-2004 Jeep Grand Cherokees

The Center for Auto Safety has recently demanded that Chrysler recall over 2 million of its Jeep Grand Cherokees that were manufactured from 1993-2004. Based on simulated crash tests, the CAS found that the Jeeps have a design defect that can cause them to burst into flames during a rear-end crash.

According to the CAS, the Jeep’s fuel tank is located behind the back tires, which can cause the fuel tank to become punctured in a rear-end accident and the vehicle to catch on fire. Statistics show that 55 people have died in the last eleven years after being involved in a rear-end crash in which the vehicles burst into flames, and fire was a significant factor in the deaths.

Chrysler has stated that they have no plans to recall the vehicles, stating, “…rear impacts resulting in fire are extremely rare…[and] occur no more often in 1993-2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles than in peer vehicles.”
