Chrysler Recalls Jeep Grand Cherokees

DETROIT Reuters reported that the Chrysler arm of DaimlerChrysler AG said on Thursday it was recalling 76,143 Jeep Grand Cherokees to fix a fuel system part that doesn't meet federal standards.

Chrysler said an internal test showed that in a high-speed, rear-end crash, a check valve on the sport utility vehicle's fuel tank could come loose, leading to a fuel leak if the vehicle rolled over. There have been no crashes or injuries associated with the problem.

Chrysler said it would put a reinforcing bracket on the valve, and also check for other fuel system problems. The recall affects 2002 model year Grand Cherokees sold in the United States, Canada and Mexico.
