Recall Alert: 284,831 Chrysler, Dodge Minivans

Chrysler has issued a recall for 284,831 Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan minivans from the 2008-2009 model years, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The recall affects vehicles built between February and September 2007, which may have a wire harness routed incorrectly. This may create a condition where the lower sliding door hinge bracket rubs against the wire insulation and wears through it.

This could cause a short circuit inside the sliding door, overheating the latch and potentially causing a fire.

Chrysler and Dodge dealers will inspect and repair the vehicles for free. Owners may contact Chrysler at 800-853-1403 or NHTSA’s hot line at 888-327-4236.

not really retaining to this problem but about half of all new and late-model chrysler vehicles i see have their day time running lights extinguish when the turn signal is in use. now i dont know if this happens with the actual headlights at night because im hardly out at night.


First Toyota, then Ford, now Chrysler. Still waiting for the government to announce a recall on Government Motors cars. Oh, wait ! GM. Oh yeah.


Bought 3 cars from Quirk Dealerships in 3 years. One a new Mustang GT Conv. Now the hood is corroding and paint is bubbling off. Quirk nor Ford will do nothing since I am just over the 3/36K. Research determines this problem is wide spread and a TSB has been issued. Will never buy from Quirk or Ford again!


Come on eric!!!! you got cars with wide spread engine problems like toyota, fair trade agreement says every new car that has Japan name on it, 10,000dallors of our tax money goes to Japan.The paint bubbles on your mustang,you never buy a ford again? you dont think other cars have that problem? Is this your first car? Have it painted and drive it several hundred thousand miles.
