2002-2007 Jeep Liberty Rear Crash Fire Danager
Manufacturer: Chrysler Group

Report Receipt Date: June 19, 2013

Component: Hitch Assemblies

Vehicle Involved: 1993-1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee & 2002-2007 Jeep Liberty SUV


Chrysler is recalling 1993-1998 Jeep Grand Cherokees & 2002-2007 Jeep Liberty SUVs due to their involvement in too many deadly fires after rear crashes. The recall is estimated to include 1.56 million vehicles.

The problem appears to exist with the hitch assemblies. Jeeps with factory installed hitch assemblies or those from Mopar will be inspected for quality conditions. Jeeps found to have non-Chrysler hitches or no hitches at all will get Mopar replacement hitches installed for free.

The official NHTSA Recall has not been issued as of this posting.
