(Independence Day, July 4, 2015). In June of 2013, Chrylser Auto Group agreed to repair over 1.5 million Jeep Grand Cherokee and Jeep Liberty vehicles because the placement and design of the vehicle’s fuel tank could cause the vehicle to catch on fire. The recall was for Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles made between 1993 and 1998 and Jeep Liberty vehicles made between 2002 and 2007. In November of 2014, Deputy Administrator of the United States Department of Transportation National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), David J. Friedman wrote the Chairman and CEO of the Chrysler Group, Sergio Marchionne urging Chrysler to more aggressively seek out vehicle owners affected by the recall of June 2013 as the fuel tanks in those vehicles may rupture if the vehicles are struck from behind leading to fires even in low to medium speed crashes. The letter from David Friedman from the NHTSA was prompted because Chrysler between June 2013 and October 2014 had only repaired 3 percent of the 1.5 million vehicles (only roughly 45,000 vehicles out of 1.5 million vehicles).
