No accident, recall for gas tank collision. Fire explosion danger. This has been reported by your Agency.. Chrysler has not yet begun the recall as reported by NHTSA. They have informed that the recall will start soon. That was in June, October and then again in December. As this is a crucial safety issue, I assume your Agency must want this resolved. [xxx] from NHTSA has told me that your Agency has not signed off on the resolution. If someone dies or is injured as a result of this non- action where does the liability lie? please advise.

On Sunday 6/30 I was at the pharmacy around my residense in phila, pa. When I pull out of the parking lot to go into the street with the traffic to go back home. The car started making this screening noise and it felt like when I would give it gas it would not respond. I tried a little bit of gas and then it made a big soun D like an explosion and it lock in the middle of the street. It would not go forward or backwards. It felt like it just drop to the floor and it felt as thou the tires fell off the car.... I had to get a tow truck to tow it away, no matter how much we would work on it. It wouldnt respond. I had just gotten the recall notice and had taken this car to a Chrysler dealer to get the replacement part they had sent notice recalling 2002-2007 Jeep. Three weeks before. I need help. I dont want to get back behind this car. It was scary and once before it had locked up on my in the middle of the highway. I thought I was going to be in a crash.

The contact owns a 2004 Jeep Liberty. The contact stated that while driving 60 mph, the fuel tank detached from the vehicle and spilled fuel onto the highway. The vehicle was towed to a used car lot. The manufacturer was notified and instructed the driver to leave the vehicle where it was until they could send someone to inspect the vehicle. Several days later, the manufacturer notified the contact that they would not send anyone to inspect the vehicle and if she wanted to have the vehicle towed to a dealer she could do so at her own cost. The vehicle had not been repaired. The failure mileage was unknown. The VIN was unavailable.
