Chrysler-Group-Logo-6-4-13June 4, 2013 , Auburn Hills, Mich. – NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) has issued a recall request letter proposing that Chrysler Group recall the Jeep Grand Cherokee in model years 1993 to 2004 and the Jeep Liberty in model years 2002 to 2007 (a total of approximately 2.7 million vehicles).

Chrysler Group has been working and sharing data with the Agency on this issue since September 2010. The company does not agree with NHTSA’s conclusions and does not intend to recall the vehicles cited in the investigation. The subject vehicles are safe and are not defective.

We believe NHTSA’s initial conclusions are based on an incomplete analysis of the underlying data, and we are committed to continue working with the Agency to resolve this disagreement. “The safety of drivers and passengers has long been the first priority for Chrysler brands and that commitment remains steadfast,” said Sergio Marchionne, Chairman and CEO of Chrysler Group LLC.

Chrysler is no stranger to organizing events that allow everyday people to show up and actually test their Jeep vehicles off road, and the Jeep Rocks & Rock Tour will offer that opportunity again in 2010. The Rocks & Road Tour will travel to 11 different venues across the United States from July 16 to October 31, offering the opportunity to get behind the wheel of a Jeep and actually drive it in an off-road environment.
