Jeep Grand Cherokees Recall

Rows of 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokees are lined up outside the Jefferson North Assembly Plant in Detroit. After an agreement between Chrysler and the U.S. government to remove about 1.2 million Jeep Grand Cherokees, model years 1999 to 2004, from a recall in June 2013, some owners are confused about the safety of their vehicles. Chrysler argued that those Jeeps have a different design than the ones it agreed to recall and are as safe as comparable models from other automakers.
