GM Recalls Auroras Chrysler Recalls Pacifica and Jeeps

DETROIT, March 11, 2004; Reuters reported that General Motors Corp. said it would recall about 93,000 Oldsmobile Aurora sedans to fix cracked fuel lines after reports of more than 35 fires in the vehicles.

DaimlerChrysler AG also plans three separate recalls to correct problems with its 2004 model year Chrysler Pacifica, Jeep Liberty and Jeep Grand Cherokee sport utility vehicles, according to a U.S. safety agency.

GM said its recall covers Auroras from the 1995 to 1997 model years equipped with the 4.0-liter V-8 engine.

"These vehicles are experiencing ... an unusual number of leaks," GM spokesman Jim Schell said.

Schell said GM had reports of 35 fires and potentially three minor injuries related to the leaky fuel lines.

The automaker will install a stainless steel fuel line to correct the problem after parts become available in May, Schell said.

The Chrysler recalls include about 34,500 2004 model year Chrysler Pacificas to install new engine software to prevent an engine from stalling at low speeds, according to an advisory on the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Web site.

Chrysler also recalled about 14,600 2004 model year Jeep Grand Cherokees equipped with 4.0-liter engines to replace an engine sensor that could malfunction and cause the engine to stall, NHTSA said.

It said Chrysler was also recalling about 2,800 2004 model year Jeep Libertys because the door locks could malfunction.
