Chrysler repairs to recalled vehicles coming too slowly, say auto safety advocates.

Auto World News (1/9, Ecarma, 1K) reported online that over “1 million Jeep Liberty and Grand Cherokee vehicles with gas tanks that can explode and catch fire during rear-end crashes have not yet been repaired,” even though “at least six people have died in five highway crashes since the recall in June 2013.” NHTSA noted in July that were Chrysler to maintain its current pace of repairing recalled vehicles, the company “would spend most of the next five years to fix the 1.56 million Jeep Grand Cherokee and Jeep Liberty models affected in the recall, which includes 2002-’07 Jeep Liberty and 1993-’98 Jeep Grand Cherokee sport utility vehicles.”
