The recall for the 600,000 minivans and Jeep Wranglers is due to a brake or wiring problem that could create safety issues. Automakers are recalling 288,968 Jeep Wranglers from year models 2006 to 2010 due to a potential brake fluid leak. It is also recalled 284,831 Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country minivans from the 2008 and 2009 model years because a wiring problem that may cause a fire inside the sliding doors.
Neither of the problems have cause any crashes or injuries, according to Chrysler. On Jeeps, the front inner fender liners can rub against the brake fluid tubes and cause a leak. The leak could lead to a partial break loss. The minivans can have improperly placed wires that can come into contact with sliding door hinges. This could cut through the insulation and in some cases cause a fire inside the door.
Chrysler plans on notifying all owners and dealers and will repair at no cost.
