Chrysler abruptly agreed to recall 2.7 million older model Jeeps Tuesday, reversing a defiant stance and avoiding a possible public relations nightmare over fuel tanks that can rupture and cause fires in rear-end collisions.

In deciding on the recall, Chrysler sidestepped a showdown with government safety regulators that could have led to public hearings with witnesses providing details of deadly crashes involving the Jeeps. The dispute ultimately could have landed in court and hurt Chrysler's image and its finances.

Chrysler can't afford anything that calls attention to lack of quality in its products. Trying to fight this recall was a bonehead decision.

One of the stories I read had a case where Chrysler last fought a recall under their previous mismanagement.
