Chrysler expected to formally refuse Jeep recall

DETROIT (AP) - Chrysler says its older model Jeep Grand Cherokees and Libertys are as safe as similar vehicles on the road.

But the government says 51 people have died in fiery crashes involving those vehicles, which have gas tanks mounted behind the rear axles.

Today, Chrysler is expected to filed papers explaining what it's refusing to recall 2.7 million older Grand Cherokees and Libertys.
