Unfixed Recalled Vehicles Still Endangering Americans – Jeeps in this Case
Dear Care for Crash Victims Community Members:
More than a year after the Jeep Recall not one vehicle has been “fixed” with the addition of a trailer hitch approved both by NHTSA and Chrysler. “Fixed” is probably an overstatement in that the trailer hitch may be shown to be a woefully ineffective “cheap fix” protection in the real world.

What Then Must We Do?
These continuing tragedies keep raising important questions. When corporations 1. ignore the safety of the American people and their legal duties to protect their customers, workers, shareholders, and suppliers, for more than a year, and 2. when NHTSA (facing a Senate Hearing on its ineffective Recall program) writes Chrysler a letter of complaint, and 3. when people continue to die or be seriously injured; what is an ordinary citizen to do?
The answer to that question is the great untold American story.
