Chrysler Recalls 435K Jeep SUVs

Chrysler Recalls 435K Jeep SUVs | Fox Business


By Matthew RoccoPublished June 06, 2013FOXBusiness

Chrysler Group said Thursday it is recalling 435,000 Jeep sport utility vehicles to repair problems with their air bags and transmission-fluid lines.
The announcements comes two days after the Big Three automaker said it would defy a separate recall request from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which asked for a recall of 2.7 million late-model Jeep Grand Cherokee and Liberty vehicles. The regulator believes they pose a greater fire risk in rear-end crashes.
Thursday’s recall covers 254,000 Patriot and Compass vehicles from model years 2010 to 2012. The vehicles are subject to a software glitch that could cause air bags to deploy late.
The automaker also said 180,000 Jeep Wranglers from model years 2012 and 2013 are being recalled to address a fuel-line leak that can damage the transmission.
Chrysler said there are no known injuries or accidents related to those issues. The recall starts in July, and the fixes will be done for free.

Re: Chrysler Recalls 435K Jeep SUVs

I applaud their defiance of the other recall. There is already a thread on the topic and I have already given my opinion on that one.

as for this one, fox states "fuel line leak that can damage the transmission". I am assuming the problem is the transmission cooler lines in which there is already a recall and they are probably just adding new years to the recall... like liberty ball joints... yes we know they are bad but we are just going to burn through our stock and keep updating the recall for the new model years that apply.

and then a software update for the airbag concern.
