Story By NBC News

NATIONWIDE - Chrysler is recalling nearly three million vehicles.

The recall covers 1993 through 2004 Grand Cherokees and Libertys from 2002 through 2007.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration requested the recalls.

It says fuel tanks in those models are located in a dangerous spot. They could rupture and start on fire in a rear-end crash.

Chrysler insists the SUVs are not defective. At first, the company refused to recall the vehicles.

But now, dealers will inspect the recalled vehicles. If necessary, they can can upgrade the rear structure to better handle low-speed crashes.
