Hi my name is [xxx] I bought a 2001 Jeep Cherokee (xj) it's came to my attention that NHTSA has a recall for the Grand Cherokee has a recall for the fuel tank protection I've been doing research for hours on the web and I have yet to find the same recall on the Jeep Cherokee models my fuel tank does not have any kind of protection and I'm sure I'm not the only Jeep Cherokee owner that has no fuel tank protection to be honest I love my Cherokee and there's no reason I could ever get rid of it other than the fuel tank safety if you could please address this issue you and or your company could not only save my life in a rear crash but you could save millions of live.

No incident yet, just wanting to know when I will receive my recall letter to take to a dealership to get the frame mount hitch to protect my family and gas tank from a rear end crash?

When vehicle is started you can smell gas fumes, within minutes the check engine light comes on. Vehicle is taken into dealer. Dealer tests it and says it a leak. They can't find it and they reset the light. Within 2 weeks the same thing happen. They replaced the gas cap a few times and changed a gasket above the fuel tank. This made no difference. Just recently the vehicle has been into the dealer twice in a month. The dealer suggested trading in the vehicle and changed the gas cap again. The last time the vehicle was in they suggested a tune up, which is normally done within suggested times anyways, but did it and charged us for it. Again same thing happened. Vehicle was taken to near by service department to be tested.results (large leak)..the problem has been ongoing, nothing is being done to solve it.
