1993-1998 jeep grand Cherokee there is a safety recall for certain 1993 through 1998 model year Jeep® Grand Cherokee vehicles.
FCA US LLC (“FCA US”) urges you to schedule your service appointment to have the recall remedy completed.
The fuel tank on your vehicle has a chance of experiencing a fuel leak during certain types of rear end collisions. Fuel leakage in the presence of an ignition source can result in a fire.
In an effort to remedy this condition and to satisfy our requirements under a Consent Order with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, FCA US offers you one of the following options:
1. FCA US will inspect your vehicle and install an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) trailer hitch where appropriate, free of charge (parts and labor) to better manage crash forces in low-speed impacts. For your inconvenience, we will provide you with a $100 unrestricted Visa® prepaid card.
If your vehicle already has an original factory installed FCA US OEM trailer hitch, the area surrounding the hitch will be inspected for damage.
If your vehicle has an aftermarket trailer hitch, the trailer hitch and the surrounding area will be inspected for any evidence of sharp edges or other puncture risks. If any such evidence is identified, the aftermarket hitch will be removed and a FCA US OEM trailer hitch will be installed free of charge, provided the condition of the vehicle can support proper removal of the existing hitch and installation of a FCA US OEM trailer hitch.
If it is determined that the condition of your vehicle does not allow the installation of a FCA US OEM trailer hitch or replacement mounting bolts, your vehicle will be returned and you will be advised what, if any, repairs are needed before the installation can be performed.
The work will take about four hours to complete. However, additional time may be necessary depending on service schedules.
