Automaker giant, the Chrysler Group, agreed to recall 2.7 million Jeeps with gas tank defects, according to a statement released on June 18.
A cost estimate by the Center for Auto Safety said it will cost Chrysler around $300 million to install the necessary parts that will address the problem. Chrysler said they will not repair all the 2.7 million Jeeps, but are likely to only repair fewer than 1.6 million vehicles, including the Grand Cherokees and Libertys that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration requested for recall.
Chrysler announced this recall right before a deadline that would have resulted in the company potentially facing high profile public hearings.
