Rows of 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokees are lined up outside the Jefferson North Assembly Plant in Detroit on Feb. 2, 2001. Chrysler says it has resolved its differences with the government and will recall older Jeep Grand Cherokee and Liberty SUVs that could be at risk of a fuel tank fire. In early June 2013, the company refused the government's request to recall the Jeeps. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration contended that the gas tanks could rupture if hit from the rear, causing fires. NHTSA said 51 people had died in fiery crashes.
