AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (WXYZ) - Chrysler has rejected a recall request by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The Auburn Hills automaker reports they have fully cooperated with a review of their vehicles for fuel system leaks following a rear-impact collision.
However, Chrysler rejected NHTSA's recall request of 1993-2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee models and 2002-2007 Jeep Liberty models.
NHTSA requested a recall of around 2.7 million of the Chrysler vehicles, but the automaker will not issue a recall.
"The company stands behind the quality of its vehicles," says Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne.
Chrysler, in a written statement, says they believe the traffic safety agency issued the recall request based on an "incomplete analysis."
