Chrysler recalls 2.7 million Jeeps over safety concerns

Posted: Updated:

Under pressure from the U.S. Government, Chrysler group today agreed to recall 2.7 million Jeeps.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration had given the automaker until today to comply.

Certain Jeep models are being recalled because of the risk of fuel leaks and fires in rear-end crashes.

They are: the 2002-to-2007 Jeep Liberty and the 1993-to-2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

The government says at least 51 people have died from fiery crashes.

Chrysler has previously argued the vehicles are safe.

In a statement, the automaker said "Chrysler Group regards safety as a paramount concern and does not compromise on the safety of our customers and their families."
