DaimlerChrysler Has Recalled 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee

(SafetyAlerts) -  DaimlerChrysler Corporation has recalled the 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Potential Number of Units Affected: 38,700

Manufactured: July - September 2001

Defect: On certain sport utility vehicles, the onboard vapor recovery system vent hose may have been misrouted. This could allow water to enter the canister, which can cause fuel to spill out of the filler tube when refueling the tank. Fuel leakage in the presence of an ignition source could result in a fire.

Remedy: Dealers will inspect, and reposition, if necessary, the vent hose. If the vent hose is found in the bent down position, and the vehicle has been driven more than 20 miles, the canister assembly will be replaced. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Dec. 3, 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact DaimlerChrysler at 1-800-853-1403.

[NHTSA Recall No. 01V348/DaimlerChrysler Recall No. A02].

Important Note Regarding Auto Recalls
Frequently SafetyAlerts will list auto recalls before
your dealer will know about them. If you have a vehicle
affected by one of these posted recalls be sure and
write down the NHTSA 
CAMPAIGN ID Number.
If your dealer doesn't know about the recall when you
check, ask them how they are notified of recalls and
when the next update is due.
