Chrysler says fix will not prevent fires

AUBURN HILLS (WKZO) -- Officials with Chrysler Group LLC say they will address concerns of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration over fuel tank fires in older model Jeep SUVs.

The government wanted the automaker to recall 2.7-millon Jeeps, but Chrysler agreed to install protective trailer hitches on 1.5-million vehicles.  Company officials contend even with extra protection, the vehicles are still at risk of fire from a high impact rear-end collisions.

Chrysler also agreed to install or inspect the gas tank shield on over 1.5-million vehicles.
