BREAKING NEWS - Jeep Grand Cherokee Fuel Tank Defect Petition
Advocates push New Chrysler to accept responsibility for product liability loses involving defective fuel tanks prior to their bankruptcy.Drivers and passengers in motor vehicles across America are being seriously injured or dying needlessly due to the misconduct and neglectful actions of auto manufacturers. Poorly designed, improperly installed, or otherwise defective fuel systems can fail when their integrity is compromised in a crash. Sometimes even minor auto accidents lead to fuel fed fires that cause serious injury and even death.
Consumer Justice Attorney Edward M.

Unfortunately, many of these dangerous vehicles (estimated 100 million) are still on the road.
Fuel systems can fail and ignite due to several potential factors:
Unfortunately, these unsafe fuel systems are unable to withstand a reasonable rear impact without the risk of catastrophic fire. Both the auto industry and the government have been reluctant to raise the safety standards for fuel tanks and systems, and have not made fuel system integrity a priority.
