Chrysler Recalls Wrangler, Minivans for Brakes-Related Issues
Last Weeks recall frenzy claimed the 2007 Dodge Calibers and Jeep Compasses for sticky Accelerators. This week, the Chrysler adds the 2007-2010 Jeep Wrangler, 2008-2009 Chrysler Town & Country, and Dodge Grand Caravans to the list, but for different reasons.
2007-2010 Jeep Wrangler
The Problem: On certain Wranglers built between May 2006 and August 2010, the front inner fender liners may rub against certain brake lines The front inner fender liners may make contact with the front brake tubes, which could wear the lines, create a fluid leak.
The Fix: Dealers will trim the inner fender liners and replace their fasteners, while also inspecting the brake lines for damage. If worn, the lines will be replaced free of charge.
Number of vehicles potentially affected: 288,968
2008-2009 Chrysler Town & Country, Dodge Grand Caravan
The Problem: Vans built between February 2007 and September 2009 may have been built with a wire harness that wasn’t properly routed during assembly. As a result, the lower sliding door hinge assembly could contact the loom, wear through insulation, and possibly create a short circuit.
The Fix: Dealers will inspect the wiring harness for the power sliding door for damage, and, if necessary, replace the loom. Dealers will also zip-tie the two harnesses together, and route them underneath the sliding door’s weather strip.
Number of vehicles potentially affected: 284,831
