The plot thickens....Maybe this answers why they are dodging the issue:

Chrysler is refusing a request by the US government to recall 2.7 million Jeeps.

Chrysler refuses government request to recall Jeeps/Chrysler Group vehicles. Chrysler says its Jeeps are safe and a recall is not necessary Continue reading the main story:http://www.bbc.co.uk/go/em/fr/-/news/business-22777489

Pfffft, what a load of rubbish!
As if Jeeps were the only fourbies to be fitted with the fuel tank in the rear.
ie. Toyota Prado
Suzuki Vitara
Just a couple I can think of at the moment that also have rear fuel tanks, I'm sure there's many more.

I'm not sure of the legalities in the USA, but in Oz we have the option of fitting long range tanks on our fourbies, usually behind the rear axle.

Don't even get me started on aftermarket LPG bombs which are so often fitted behind the rear axle of most vehicles.

Go Chrysler! Stand your ground, give 'em heaps!

You've got a point about fuel tanks othewise we wouldn't be allowed to fit the LRA 100L aux tank behind the rear axle and there are no reports here that I know of about safety problem with earlier model Jeeps with rear mounted fuel tanks in Oz...Having said this, I wouldn't be too quick with to heap praise on Chrysler Jeep:

Could be they are hiding behind the "Jeeps are safe" statement to dodge other recalls such as the "transmission shift into neutral" issue....Can see why Chrysler Jeep is rejecting the 2.7million recall though.. Assuming a conserative cost of say $1000 per vehicle x 2.7million vehicles, that adds up to a huge hit on a company who has just been saved by the US government from total collapse during the GFC..It would be goodbye Jeep and probably Fiat as well and more so if it costs more per vehicle....Still doesn't explain why a software update for the transmission fault is being dodged or other recalls for that matter...

Yeah, it said 5,603 jeep commanders and grand Cherokees. Doesn't give a breakup. Did give a customer care no. 1800993619. Owners will get a second letter closer to the launch.

CUSTOMER RECALL N23
SOFTWARE UPDATE

Fiat Chrysler Group will recall approximately 5603 Jeep Commanders and Jeep Grand Cherokee's model years 2006-2010 and 2005 -2010 respectively nationally to perform a software update.
Chrysler Group LLC discovered some circuit boards may transmit compromised signals that enable inadvertent gearshifts to neutral. The software update prevents such occurrences.

The update will be performed at no cost to customers.

The recall has not been officially released in the United States as yet but Fiat Chrysler Group have taken a precautionary measure to notify all owners of the upcoming recall, which is due to be released July 2013.
Owners will receive a 2nd Letter explaining the official release once we have confirmed the launch.

To date the only occurrence of inadvertent gearshifts into neutral have been in vehicles fitted with a remote start-up function which is only available in the US .

Notes:
Chrysler's recall campaign number is N23. Owners may contact FiatChrysler Group customercare centre on 1800-993-619 should they wish to discuss this announcement.

Yours Sincerley

Hi,

I rang jeep/chrysler australia about it the other day, and they ask for your engine number, within seconds he told me that it had 3 upgrades (modules with previous owner). When I queried the power train fault he told me that there was no further recall notices. I supose it's dependant on the engine number...
Well Scrubby what did I say about hearsay I heard about mis-information often coming from Chrysler/Jeep Australia....Wish they'd get their act straight treating us a bit like idiots when out there is the Internet where information flows freely...Well at the moment anyway.
