You Saw It: Chrysler Recalls Small Jeeps

Chrysler is recalling about 1,700 small Jeeps because of faulty gas tank valves that can cause fires.

The recall affects some 2012 all-wheel-drive Jeep Compass and Patriot SUV's.

Chrysler says the valves were damaged when the manufacturer tested them for leaks.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says the valves can leak gasoline if the SUV's are involved in a crash.

Chrysler says it doesn't know of any fires or injuries.

The recall is expected to start in June.

Dealers will replace the fuel tanks free of charge.
