Chrysler refuses federal request to recall 2.7 million Jeeps

Posted under Car Accidents

Chrysler recently refused a government request to recall 2.7 million of its SUVs that allegedly have a gas tank design defect.

The design defect was found in the Jeep Grand Cherokee 1993-2004 and Jeep Liberty 2002-2007 models. National Highway Traffic Safety Administrator David Strickland said in a statement that they are currently investigating Chrysler, that the automaker should initiate a recall, and that Chrysler should inform all affected owners of the defect.

However, Chrysler insisted that the gas tank design located behind the rear end axle of their SUVs is a standard design.

Design defects in vehicles can all too easily endanger the lives of its owners. As such, the lawyers at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. work with victims of such accidents to get the compensation and justice they need. Call 800-242-2874 to find out what your legal options are.
