According to CNN, Chrysler is recalling 2.7M jeeps
 
It is in the breaking news banner, so I don't have a link, but it sounds like they decided to agree to the recall.

I guess that's good for PR.

Looks like a free gas tank skid plate for all.

Does not apply to wk2 or wk2.5.

Didn't think so, this is only for ones that have the gas tank behind the rear axle.

Chrysler is going to supply a free tow hitch to 2004 and earlier Grand Cherokees (and the years of Liberty's affected) that don't have one. Their data studies found a significant less risk of fire from a rear end collision in those equipped with a tow hitch apparently.

Edit: Here's a link to one article about it: http://autos.yahoo.com/blogs/motoram...183456236.html

Well, I'm glad their going to comply with the recall whether they really had to or not.

I have 2 qualifying Jeep GCs. 2000 and 2004.

From what I read sounds like repair is to add more structure in front of the tank, and/or to replace aftermarket hitches with an OEM hitch.

Will wait for the notification.

Disappointed with Sergio giving in.

Yes, I have a 1999 GC under the recall.

Yes, I read Chrysler's White Paper and looked at the data and charts.

These vehicles were built to standards and common practice of the day. I think it's ridiculous that they are recalling 15-20 year old vehicles.

We all pay for this in new vehicle prices that are increased to pay for this and frivolous lawsuits.

Just my 2 cents.

FWIW, according the the USA today article the recall remedy does not need to be covered by the manufacturer if the vehicle is more than 10 years out from its original in service date. You might be out of luck for a free hitch.

Not sure that is true, They were doing Recalls on Fiero Engine fires still in 1997 and the last year that car was built was 88 (all of them still qualified)

Yeah, it was in the USA today, so not sure if it is 100% accurate... But I did literally stay in a holiday inn last night (and again tonight... ):D
