Jeep Liberty Fire Risk and Recall Information

For months public officials working at the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration), have attempted to persuade Chrysler and its parent Fiat to voluntarily recall hundreds of thousands of its vehicles because of an increased risk of fire due to gas tank rupture. However the auto manufacturing giant only relented to such demands in June of 2013, only after regulators threatened the company with the launch of new investigation into the matter. Issues with liability in the claim may develop particularity due to Chryslers bankruptcy and the transfer of all assets to a new corporate entity and with its eventual absorption into Fiat SpA and Italian manufacturing conglomerate.    

Filing a Class A Class Action Lawsuit – Product Liability Lawsuit Information

In a class action lawsuit a class representative is chosen and will represent the matter in the court of law. This persons should have the adequate financial resources to protect the rights of the other class members.  Product liability lawsuits are usually based on proving one of three causes of action.

I own a 2005 Jeep Liberty. I have not been contacted by them concerning a recall. Mywife is afraid tp get in the car after reading about this. What can we do to protect ourselves?

I have a 2007 jeep liberty. It seems that regardless of the trailer hitch that this problem devalues the car substantially. Is there a suit for damages I can join

I own a 2005 Jeep Liberty -with a hitch that now cannot take a certain impact if hit from the rear and is not protected if it’s hit from a certain side angel- I’m petrified driving this car- People are afraid of me on the road- No one wants to drive with me – I can’t drive the children anymore either because yes it’s a explosive fire hazard. THIS IS SO UNFAIR

Also every time I get gas it’s smells like gas fumes for days- To the point of a headache and I paid for this……

I petrified driving this jeep – it smells like gas very strong for days after I get gas – I am extremely nervous while driving and being hit from the back knowing from documented fatalities – it could explode – yes they put the hitch in but what about back angels behind the gas tank – the hitch will not work from side angles!

I have a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo, I just spent $1000 and had my AC components completely replaced so I can have a working AC/Heater again. I have returned it to the shop twice already because the AC will not go below 65-75 degrees Fahrenheit. The AC system works perfectly fine, after a lot of research I have found out the the Heater Core was poorly engineered and the blend doors most commonly break completely disrupting correct airflow and mixing hot and cold air together. This being in the South of Georgia and North Florida. Outside Temperatures rise up to 100+ Degree Fahrenheit daily with the humidity heat index. Making it dangerous to drive and commute to work. Such establishments do not allow federal employees to work in Black index, driving should be treated no differently, Jeep owners are a proud community and should not have to making annual repairs because or poor engineering. Preventing our vehicles from maintaining there value. I am all in for a class action lawsuit. If nothing is done about poor engineering and using poor materials to save money for manufacturing they will keep doing it.

I own a 2004 Jeep Liberty. I had absolutely no idea of this dangerous gas tank design flaw and was never notified by Chrysler of any recall. How do I sign up in this class action lawsuit?
