Chrysler refuses to recall 2.7 million jeeps

A source tells our Poppy Harlow that automaker Chrysler will fight a potential recall in court if it has to. It all started when the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration told Chrysler it wants nearly 3 million older model Jeep Grand Cherokee and Liberty SUVs to be recalled.

Chrysler refuses to recall 2.7 million Jeep SUVs

The regulator says the gas tanks can spill gas when the vehicle is hit from behind, creating a fire hazard.

But in a rare move, Chrysler is refusing the recall them, saying the SUVs are safe.

Poppy Harlow has been tracking the story and is OutFront.

    Proud of Chrysler. This is just another attack on business. The frequncy of these incidents does not warrant a recall. Our government needs to be less intrusive. Besides, why do we want to blame a car manufacturer for a rear end accident. No personal responsibility is the hallmark of the Obama administration. Good grief !!!
