Recall Alert: 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan, Chrysler Town & Country

Dodge Grand CaravanChrysler is recalling 367,350 of its 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country minivans over issues with the air-conditioning system, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

In approximately 3% of the recalled vehicles, the HVAC drain grommet was improperly installed. Water could build up and leak into some electrical system, causing the airbags to inadvertently deploy.

So far, several injuries have been reported to the automaker because of this issue. However, none have been fatal.

Chrysler will notify owners in February 2011 as to whether their vehicle has been recalled. Minivans affected by the recall will have their HVAC drain grommet replaced by a Chrysler dealership free of charge.

For more info, owners can call Chrysler at 800-853-1403 or NHTSA’s hot line at 888-327-4236.
