Chrysler Recalls Minivans for Fire Risk

49696158 Chrysler Recalls Minivans for Fire Risk

2010 Chrysler Town & Country

Chrysler’s popular minivans are the subject of a new recall that follows two other recent recalls by the domestic automaker.

The 2008-2009 Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan are being recalled for a problem with wiring. In some vehicles from those model years–the vehicles in question were built between February and September of 2007–the wiring harness was not routed properly, which can lead to contact with the sliding side door. If the harness casing is worn through, the door latch could overheat, and a fire could result.

Reuters reports as many as 284,831 minivans might be affected.

Chrysler will repair vehicles for free, starting this month. Owners can contact the automaker at 800-853-1403, or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) at 888-327-4236.

Chrysler’s also recalling two other model lines–some 2007 Dodge Caliber and Jeep Compass compacts are being brought back for sticky throttle pedals, and the 2007-2010 Jeep Wrangler is being recalled for leaking brakes.
