Chrysler Voluntarily Recalls Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep Vehicles

June 15, 2011

WASHINGTON – NHTSA announced that Chrysler has recalled a total of 11,351 vehicles across a number of 2011-MY models (built between April 15 and May 14), specifically the Chrysler 200, Chrysler Town and Country, Chrysler 200 Convertible, Dodge Avenger, Dodge Caliber, Dodge Grand Caravan, Dodge Journey, Dodge Nitro, Jeep Compass, Jeep Liberty, Jeep Patriot, and Jeep Wrangler.

Some of these vehicles may have been built with a missing or incorrectly installed steering column pivot rivet, which could potentially compromise the steering column’s ability to support occupant loads in the event of a frontal crash.

Chrysler released a statement saying that this manufacturing issue does not affect the ability of the driver to steer the vehicle under normal driving conditions. The automaker also said it’s not aware of any accidents, injuries, or property damage related to this issue.
