Chrysler has announced a voluntary recall on about 285, 000 of it’s vehicles this week. Model years of both 2008 and 2009’s Dodge Caravans and Chrysler Town & Country cars have reportedly been pulled after the National Highway Safety Administration claims the vehicles may have been built with an improperly routed wire harness that could potentially short circuit and cause a fire on the road.
This is the second recall for Chrysler this month. Just last week, the company recalled 25,00 Dodge Caliber and Jeep Compass cars because of reported issues that caused gas pedals to stick. Over 10,000 additional cars have been recalled in other countries.
Fortunately (or conveniently, depending on who you might have to ask this morning), Chrysler is currently “not aware” of any accidents or injuries related to the recall, according to a company spokesman’s recent statement. The company is conducting the voluntary safety recall for the vehicles “to inspect the sliding-door wire-track assembly for damage and repair or replace as necessary.”
