Chrysler has recalled about 1,700 2012 Jeep Compass and Jeep Patriots for a problem with the fuel tank.
The recall effects vehicles manufactured from December 17, 2011 through January 2, 2012. Some vehicles may have been built with a fuel tank assembly containing a damaged roll-over valve.
In an impact or roll-over, fuel leakage could occur, increasing the risk of a fire.
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fuel tank, free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin in June. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403.
