Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is recalling approximately 30,354 2019 Dodge Grand Caravan minivans for a seat striker issue.

Specifically, the welds on the outboard rear seat strikers for the second row bench and second row bucket seats may fail during a front impact crash. In addition, the front outboard seat strikers for the third row bench seats may fail in the event of a rear impact collision. Finally, the second row bench and second row bucket seats may not withstand the required loads.

In the event seat strikers fail, the seat or seat belt may not adequately restrain the occupant, increasing the likelihood of injury.

To fix the problem, FCA will notify owners, and dealers will weld in a striker reinforcement bracket on the second and third row outboard seat strikers, at no cost to owners.

The recall begins Dec. 13. Owners can reach FCA US customer service at (800) 853-1403. FCA's number for this recall is V91.
