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
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.
