Detroit, Mich. -

Chrysler says calls from concerned customers have helped persuade it to go along with a government request to recall 2.7 million older model Jeeps.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says the gas tanks in Jeep Grand Cherokees from model years 1993 through 2004 and Jeep Libertys from 2002 through 2007 can rupture if hit from the rear and cause a fire. Chrysler insists the vehicles are safe, but dealers will inspect the vehicles and install trailer hitches to protect the gas tanks.
