    Summary

    Chrysler Group LLC (Chrysler) is recalling certain model year 1993-1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee and 2002-2007 Jeep Liberty vehicles. The fuel tanks in these vehicles are at risk of failure and leakage in certain rear impacts.

    Consequences

    A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source may result in a fire.

    Remedy

    Chrysler has issued interim notifications to owners and informed that a free remedy is not yet available. Chrysler will notify owners again when a free remedy is available. When the remedy parts are released, owners will be instructed to take their vehicles to dealers and the dealers will perform a free inspection of the rear structure. On vehicles in the recall that are not equipped with a tow hitch, Chrysler will install a Chrysler designed tow hitch free of charge, provided the condition of the vehicle can support proper installation. On vehicles in the recall that are equipped with an aftermarket tow hitch, Chrysler will assess whether the hitch and surrounding areas show evidence of sharp edges or other puncture risks. If so, Chrysler will replace the tow hitch with a Chrysler designed tow hitch free of charge, provided the condition of the vehicle can support proper installation. On vehicles already equipped with a Chrysler designed tow hitch, Chrysler will inspect the area around the tow hitch installation, and if any installation issues are identified, they will be repaired free of charge. As of April 2014, the remedy parts are still not available, but are expected to become available starting in August 2014. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-247-9753.
