 Institute for Traffic Safety and Road United States (NHTSA) announced in-depth investigation of the two brands, namely Chevrolet Cruze 2011 (General Motors) and the Jeep Wrangler 2010 (Chrysler Group) since it was reported that threaten the safety of fire engines. They have received the report, each two of the eight riders Cruze and Wrangler owner, who reported the fire came from the machine even when you're driving.

In fact, the Cruze is reportedly sold out on fire but did not include the name of the owner of the vehicle to avoid intimidation. Owner of the 2011 Cruze Eco explains, his car began to smoke from the hood. Five minutes later the fire came after the car stopped on the roadside. Direct fire bigger and eating all the Cruze body. Warning lights on the "dashboard" lights up shortly after the fire.

While of the eight consumer Wrangler, seven claimed to fire up when the engine running. In one incident, the driver said, "Seeing the burning liquid dripping from the engine area. I am trying to extinguish it with water but to no avail. Takes only minutes, the whole car was burned out," explained one of the complainants, as reported by Autonews (1 / 4/2012).

Related to this issue, both GM and Chrysler will ensure full cooperation with regulators and admitted to not knowing the victim or the loss of life from the incident. "We're certainly doing its own internal investigation and will share our findings with the government," said GM spokesman Alan Adler.

Chrysler spokesman Nick Cappa added, "the burned-out vehicles are complex and can occur for many reasons and it could be nothing to do with the condition of the vehicle itself. Care less, the indiscriminate use of aftermarket parts or modifications may be the cause of the fire."

For Wrangler, this investigation is not the first time but the continuation of a similar problem. In August 2009, NHTSA conducted an investigation the same because there are reports of three cars on fire. The result, Chrysler to massive improvement campaign in February 2010 to replace the transmission oil is "overheated" and potentially cause a fire.

The case is connected with the extreme conditions of the rider, such as the frequent use of cars in the area off-road. On April 2011, China stopped imports of Wrangler since there are similar complaints. Some local media quoted the Chinese government (China), said a problem with 4-speed transmission and Chrysler then replace the 2011 Wrangler with 5-speed transmission used on the Grand Cherokee.

Throughout 2011, sales reached 232 000 units Cruze among the Cruze 2011 177 000 units. While Chrysler already sell 122 000 Wrangler. This amount is a reflection, how many vehicles would be subject to recall if they prove harmful to consumers. Get ready!
