News Summary: Chrysler refuses to recall Jeeps, SUVs that government says could catch fire

Associated Press

NOPE: Chrysler refused a government request to recall 2.7 million older Jeep Grand Cherokee and Liberty SUVs, saying the vehicles are safe.

FIRE FEAR: The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration sent Chrysler a letter seeking the recall after a three-year investigation. The agency says 1993-2004 Grand Cherokees and 2002-2007 Libertys have fuel tanks that can leak and catch fire in rear-end collisions. Chrysler says the Jeeps met federal safety standards.

NEXT STEP: NHTSA hopes Chrysler will reconsider. Chrysler said it's working with NHTSA to resolve the dispute. NHTSA could order a recall, but the issue could wind up in court.
