Chrysler announced Tuesday that it would bow to the US safety regulator’s pressure to recall 2.7 million Jeep Liberties and Jeep Grand Cherokees over a fire risk.

Two weeks after rejecting the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s recommendation for a recall, Chrysler said it would “conduct a voluntary campaign with respect to the vehicles in question” for inspection and possible modifications.
