Safety of Jeep Grand Cherokee called into question by Center for Auto Safety

The safety of the Chrysler-manufactured Jeep Grand Cherokee was recently called into question by the Center for Auto Safety, who is also demanding that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration issue a recall of the 2.2 million Jeep Grand Cherokees that were produced from 1993 to 2004.

The CAS found that the vehicles caused at least 55 deaths in the past eleven years because of a design defect in the vehicle’s fuel system. The fuel tank is placed near the rear bumper which often caused it to become ruptured during rear-end accidents. This then caused the vehicle to burst into flames.

The NHTSA has not issued a comment on the situation, however, they are investigating the Jeep Grand Cherokees that were manufactured in this time period. Jeep Grand Cherokees that were made after 2004 underwent significant design changes with the fuel system and have since not caused any deaths during accidents.
