Jeep Grand Cherokee, Liberty recall update expected tomorrow

Tomorrow, June 18, 2013 is a big day for owners of certain Jeep Grand Cherokee and Liberty vehicles, because they will learn if they will finally get the recall their SUV deserves. 12 days ago the NHSTA had advised Chrysler that they should issue a recall for 2.7 million Jeep vehicles, but at that time they refused the request.

The reason why we expect a Jeep Grand Cherokee, Liberty recall update tomorrow, is because Chrysler has up until June 18 to respond to the request from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and if Chrysler does not take any action against them, then the NHTSA should be able to force the recall.

However, we do expect Chrysler to take the matter further, as they previously said they did not agree with the NHTSA findings, and that more tests needed to be carried out. This is a huge deal for the car maker, because they would need to recall 2.7 million Jeep Grand Cherokee and Jeep Liberty vehicles, but should they be putting a price on this, especially when there has been 51 people killed, which could have been caused because of the ongoing issue.

The NHTSA has said that they do not take these recalls lightly, and while they have not advised owners of these affected vehicles to stop driving their vehicles, they do so at their own risk. We wonder how many have parked their affected Jeeps up?

We are sitting on the fence on this one, as it would be far easy to put the blame on either one, because while the NHTSA has drivers own interest at heart, it’s worth noting that in some of the cases where people had died, the rear of these vehicles had been completely smashed in, and so there is always a risk of fire in that respect.
