Chrysler refuses government request to recall its 2.7 million SUVs

Automaker giant Chrysler recently refused a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recall of its 1993-2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee models and 2002-2007 Jeep Liberty’s, claiming that the NHTSA’s claim that it poses a risk to its owners is unfounded.

The NHTSA recently cited Chrysler’s gas tank design, which has the gas tank placed behind the axle at the back, as dangerous; however, according to the automaker, it is a standard design used in many different vehicles. In a statement Chrysler said the number of deaths caused by rear-end crashes and fire reported by the Center for Auto Safety is overstated. NHTSA started investigating Chrysler after Grand Cherokees and Libertys were involved in hundreds of deaths and fire crashes.

Vehicle design defects can result in devastating injuries if they cause an auto accident. However, you may be able to seek compensation after such an accident in Detroit  with the help of the legal team of Ravid & Associates, P.C., Learn more about your options by calling 866-644-6587.
