Chrysler Recall 2013: The 10 Vehicles Recalled By Chrysler, Jeep, and GM

After stating that they would not comply with a recall demanded by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Chrysler Group has reversed course and agreed to recall 2.7 million Jeeps. Chrysler maintains that the vehicles are safe. In addition, General Motors is recalling almost 194,000 SUVs in the United States because an electronic module could short circuit, causing a fire. 

In a statement, Chrysler said it will recall the vehicles for inspection and, in "some cases," will "provide an upgrade to the rear structure of the vehicle to better manage crash forces in low-speed impacts." NHTSA says there have been least 37 accidents in which a Jeep has caught fire due to a rear impact, resulting in at least 51 deaths.

Refusal to comply would have led to public hearings that would be very costly to the automaker's reputation.
