Chrysler Recalling Mid-Size Cars for Potential Fuel Leaks

By Grant Law Office on February 25, 2013

Chrysler Group LLC has issued an auto defect recall on a number of their mid-size cars that have damaged fuel tank control valves. As reported by The Detroit News, 1,785 vehicles in the United States are affected by the recall, including Chrysler 200 and Dodge Avenger mid-size sedans. Officials say the damaged control valves could cause the engine to stall or fuel to leak. The recall is linked to faulty parts shipped by the tank supplier and only involves vehicles that were manufactured during a five-day period last fall. Chrysler is unaware of any accidents that have resulted from this auto defect.

There have been a number of recent recalls involving fuel tanks and fuel-related issues. In a related but separate recall, BMW AG’s Rolls-Royce unit recalled 27 new Phantom vehicles that were shipped without anti-misfueling devices. Only seven of the affected vehicles were sold. Chrysler also had to recall Jeep Compass vehicles from model year 2012 for fuel-related defects. Certain Jeep Patriot and Compass vehicles were built with a fuel tank assembly that had a damaged rollover valve. In the event of a rollover, fuel could leak and cause a fire.

The Georgia auto defect lawyers at The Law Offices of Wayne Grant, P.C. know that it is the responsibility of all auto manufacturers to ensure that their vehicles are reasonable safe. When an auto part is defective, it can cause the vehicle to experience sudden and unexpected malfunctions, which can lead to a major accident. Defective auto parts have been linked to:

  • Fuel system explosions
  • Car fires
  • Rollover risks
  • Seatbelt problems
  • Occupant ejections
  • Structural integrity issues

In the event of a Georgia car accident, it is important that victims or families of deceased victims preserve the vehicle that was involved so it can be thoroughly examined by an expert for defects, malfunctions, and other evidence. The skilled attorneys at The Law Offices of Wayne Grant, P.C. know how to hold auto manufacturers accountable.
