This month, a recall was issued for certain model years of the Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles. This is a very popular and widely used model. The reason stated for the recall states that the fuel tanks risk leakage in the case of a rear impact; and the resulting consequence could be a fuel leak that might catch fire. If you own one of these vehicles, you should be receiving information on the recall with instructions on how to proceed. You may also read more details here.
Sometimes it is difficult to track down 2nd or 3rd owners of a vehicle that has been recalled. Even though manufacturers have become very adept at locating registered owners, there might still be some that are unaware, and continue to drive their vehicle with the risk. If one of these ever has an accident it might become more damaging if a fire erupts by this faulty fuel tank.
