    DETROIT/WASHINGTON (Bloomberg) -- Eighteen months into a recall of Jeeps with exploding gas tanks, drivers of the affected models are still dying and more than 1 million of the vehicles remain unfixed.


    A top safety regulator has called the slow pace of repairs “woeful” and demanded that executives do more to reach owners of the affected Jeep Liberty and Grand Cherokee models, which can catch fire after being rear-ended. Since the Jeeps were recalled in June of 2013, at least six people have died in five crashes, including a pregnant Michigan woman in November, according to a tally maintained by the Center for Auto Safety.

    62 dead in 33 crashes -those poor families - Wonder if people actually research what they are buying? Glad no one in my family drives a Jeep.
