Multiple news agencies have revealed that Jeep Compass and Patriot vehicles manufactured by Chrysler are being recalled over the possibility these models could pose a serious fire risk to drivers.
According to an official report issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, all units of these specific recalled units were manufactured between December 17th, 2011 and January 2nd, 2012. The announcement reveals that the reason behind this recall is the fact these vehicles may have been equipped with a fuel tank assembly that could contain a damaged rollover valve.
According to the manufacturer, if this problem persists, a fuel leakage might occur, posing a serious fire hazard to drivers and passengers. At this moment, the carmaker is contacting all recalled vehicle owners. Chrysler will perform any repairs for free at authorized dealers across the country. If you or a loved one owns one of these recalled models, contact the firm and ask about how you should proceed to have your vehicle fixed as soon as possible.
