Recall: 600,000 Chrysler Vehicles

Chrysler is recalling nearly 600,000 vehicles. It’s not quite the 2.3 million that Toyota recalled in January, but U.S. safety regulators are concerned about Chrysler models that suffer from brake failure, sticky accelerators, and the potential to catch on fire.

The affected models are Chrysler Town and Country minivans and Dodge Grand Caravan minivans from 2008-09. A short circuit in the latch for the sliding door is a fire hazard. Jeep Wranglers from 2007 to 2010 leak brake fluid, that could cause brake failure. These new recalls are in addition to the Dodge Caliber and Jeep Compass vehicles (both 2007) for sticky accelerator pedals.

Chrysler says it will notify owners of each model this month and fix each vehicle at no charge.
