Chrysler Town&Country And Dodge Caravan Recall Affects 285,000 Cars In US
Chrysler Town&Country and Dodge Caravan minivans will be recalled for the second time this year, this time over a problem that might lead to fire.
Chrysler will make a recall for 285,000 units for the Dodge Caravan and Chrysler Town&Country. The recall affects the cars produced between February and September 2007, which might have electrical issues that would lead to flames. Until now, the Chrysler officials have received no information regarding any incidents caused by this problem. The Americans will check the locking mechanism and the wiring of the sliding doors. This is the second recall for the Chrysler minivans this year.
The Americans from Chrysler made another recall last month, but then 25.000 Dodge Caliber and Jeep Compass units were involved. The problem were some faulty gas pedals, which came from the same provider that built the gas pedals of the Toyota models that were involved in the huge recall at the end of the last year. Other 10,000 cars on other markets were recalled over the same problem.
Dodge Caravan, Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town&Country were recalled at the start of this year, but due to an air-bags issue. The mentioned models were having problems with the crash sensors in to front side of the car, issues that could have lead to serious injuries if the air-bags didn’t came of in a crash. The recall affected 300,000 owners of cars build between 2004 and 2005.
