1,700 Chrysler Jeeps Recalled

Posted:
WASHINGTON, D.C. (KWWL) -

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.
