Chrysler Recalling 2012-MY Jeep Patriot, Compass Vehicles

April 10, 2012

WASHINGTON – Chrysler Group is recalling 1,689 2012 model-year Jeep Patriot and Compass vehicles because some of them may have been built with a fuel tank assembly containing a damaged rollover valve, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported. 

The condition poses a fire risk because of the potential for fuel leakage during a rollover or collision, according to the NHTSA. The vehicles covered by the recall were all manufactured from Dec. 17, 2011 through Jan. 2, 2012.

Chrysler will notify vehicle owners of the recall, and dealers will replace the fuel tank. There will be no charge for this service. 

This safety recall is expected to get under way in June. Chrysler can be reached at (800) 853-1403.
