Government Motors and the UAW own Chrysler after Obama squandered millions of our tax dollars to ‘save’ the failing car manufacture. Once again, we see exactly what millions of our tax dollars to bail out the UAW gets us, as Chrysler has been forced to recall 2.7 million Jeeps because of fire risk.

Originally Chrysler didn’t want to recall the Jeeps even with the potential fire risk and death to the drivers and passenger. They were finally ‘forced’ to recall the 2.7 million Jeeps after public pressure forced them to do it.
Its statement said it will recall the vehicles for inspection and, in “some cases,” will “provide an upgrade to the rear structure of the vehicle to better manage crash forces in low-speed impacts.”
“Chrysler Group recognizes that this matter has raised concerns for its customers and wants to take further steps, in coordination with NHTSA, to provide additional measures to supplement the safety of its vehicles,” the company said.
“It strikes me that Chrysler underestimated the negative publicity they’d get out of fighting, and that they decided it was better off to go ahead and do the recall,” said Michelle Krebs, senior analyst at Edmunds.com. She said fighting the recall would have been “a very risky gamble,” even if Chrysler had eventually been proven right.
“It’s still an uphill battle for Chrysler in the perception of quality and [a hearing] could [have] set it back.”
