Concerns over the risk of fire due to placement of the fuel tank on older models have caused the auto maker to comply with a recall request from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

This issue is with 1993 through 2004 Jeep Cherokee models, and 2002 to 2007 Jeep Liberty’s which feature fuel tanks mounted behind the rear axle. The NHTSA says a rear-end crash could puncture the fuel tank potentially causing a fire. They also claim the defect may already be responsible for up to 51 deaths.

Chrysler initially refuted the claim, saying their own tests provided ”technical information and detailed analyses showing these models are safe, and meet or exceed all applicable federal motor vehicle safety standards.”

However, the company backed down when consumers voiced concerns after hearing of the NHTSA’s investigation.

Despite their willingness to comply with the recall, Chrysler contends the vehicles are safe to drive and asks anyone with concerns to call their customer care line at 1-800-CHRYSLER.
