Chrysler is recalling “about 250,000 vehicles to fix potential engine stalling.” (Washington, AP, 3/3). The auto manufacturer says the recall affects 2010 Dodge Grand Caravans, Chrysler Town & Country Minivans, and 2010 Dodge Journey Crossovers.
The recall is in response to reports that “the ignition key could move while driving and cause the engine to shut off.” Chrysler says this defect increases the risk of a crash.
To date, the government has received 32 complaints, two of which resulted in crashed.
Although the recall is expected to begin in April, owners can contact Chrysler at (800) 853-1403.
As a Chicago area car and truck accident attorney, I urge all consumers to stay up to date on vehicle recalls and to have their vehicles repaired promptly.
