Chrysler Recalls 700,000 Minivans, Jeeps

June 09, 2010

WASHINGTON - Chrysler is recalling nearly 600,000 minivans and Jeep Wranglers in the U.S., along with an additional 100,000 in other markets, because of brake and wiring problems. 

Chrysler said it is recalling 288,968 MY 2006-2010 Jeep Wranglers because of a potential brake fluid leak. The front inner fender liners can rub against the brake fluid tubes and lead to a leak. This in turn could lead to potential brake loss, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said. 

The automaker is also recalling 284,831 MY 2008-2009 Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country minivans because of a wiring problem that poses a potential fire risk inside the sliding doors. The vehicles might have improperly placed wires that can come into contact with sliding door hinges that could cut through the insulation. 

Chrysler is recalling an additional 76,430 Wranglers and 34,143 minivans in Canada, Mexico and other international markets. 

The automaker will notify owners of the recall, and Chrysler dealers will make the repairs free of charge. The recall is expected to begin later this month.
