2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Recalled

Detroit, MI  (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway Transportation Administration (NHTSA) has announced  the recall of certain Jeep Grand Cherokee model year 2000 vehicles because some of the sport utility vehicles have been built with fuel tanks with suspect vent tube welds. Separation of the vent tube weld could result in a fuel leak. Fuel leakage in the presence of an ignition source could result in a fire.

1,500 vehicles manufactured in June 2000 are affected by this recall.

Dealers will replace any fuel tanks built in the suspect time period. The vehicle will be inspected and if the bar code on the fuel tank indicates that the tank was built during the suspect period, it will be replaced. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during August 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact DaimlerChrysler at 1-800-992-1997.
