How do you go about knowing where to learn about the recall.. Or even have the vehicle inspected.. I am not very concerned about my jeep. It's an animal! Jw

I had 3 recalls done this year to my 97 ZJ. I've owned it since 2007 and this year I took it to the dealer for the very first time for an oil change special. Told me about the recalls so I was like okay whatever. Got the secondary floor shifter replaced, something with the airbag replaced and the only one I cared about was the fuel sending unit cause mine was already faulty.

As far as this one goes. I don't tow anything so I don't even care to get the recalled tow hitch. If skid plates, I don't off road in mine. It's a 2x4 and a city car. Not really a huge deal to me. Normally I would be like oooo free repairs but the only one I cared about was my fuel sending unit cause that's the issue that affected me the most.

I wish that Jeep would have stood their ground and this went to court.

The reason is I want to know what the average speed of impact was for the vehicles that caught on fire after impact.

I go to junk yards all the time and see zjs with the rear deck pushed saverly up words because of rear end collisions the only one that wasn't bad was the jeep with a skid and hitch but still none had any fire damage on them. I figure if you get hit hard enough from the rear to cause a gas tank fire you have more serious problems like the unibody folding and absolutely rendering the jeep useless.

ayup. bang on there.

never seen a torched ZJ that wasn't from som yahoo's who stole it and lit it on fire just to watch it burn.

prety sure if you get rear ended at more than a 'slow speed impact' you have bigger issues to worry about.

lol ... I was rear-ended several years ago, and the impact was right onto my trailer hitch. It dented the frame rail down to the point that the hitch was useless.

Are they going to repair my frame and install a new hitch? Ummm ... no ...

That's what I was wondering...

Both my dad and I have Grands that have a towing hitch (I think they're factory). My husband has a Cherokee plain, no hitch.

Both my husband and I have been rear ended.

He got hit at a red light by someone not paying attention. It was a pretty nasty jar. He was sore for several days. His gas tank now has a basketball size dent in it and he needed to install a new bumper. But otherwise the jeep is fine.

I got tapped by a semi truck who thought the shoulder was a driving lane. My bumper is a bit skewed, but otherwise the jeep is fine and has been for several years now.

they chickened out because of the bad publicity. Who cares, i have a higher chance of being killed by a side impact then someone rear ending me and my tank exploding. Hell, have a better chance getting hit walking through a cross walk probably, who knows. what did we figure out, .002% or something like that for zj's that caught fire in rear end accidents. Grow a pair Fiat (since it's them now right?) this was blown way out of proportion by the media and everyone got into a panic for nothing.

Honestly, with zj's high center of gravity, i bet i'd roll it on a curve before it blows up.
