Chrysler announced today that it was recalling 667,000 cars and vans for safety defects. There actually two separate recalls
The first one affects 2013-model Chrysler Town & Country, Dodge Grand Caravan and Ram C/V Tradesman minivans built May 10, 2012, through June 7, 2013. A defective electronic part could cause the wrong side airbags to deploy in a side impact.
The second one involves a defective head restraint system and affects:
2011-2013 Chrysler Sebring and Chrysler 200 cars manufactured June 28, 2011, through December 13, 2012;
2011-2013 Dodge Avenger cars made June 25, 2011, through January 14, 2013;
2011-2012 Dodge Nitro SUVs built June 17, 2011, through December 15, 2011;
2011-2012 Jeep Liberty SUVs manufactured June 17, 2011, through August 15, 2012
If you think you have one of the affected vehicles, contact your dealer immediately and ask them to make the necessary repairs. If you have had problems with these components and have tried to get them repaired in the past, I recommend that you also contact a local Lemon Law attorney.
I'll have a new topic for you for my next post. In the meantime, you can get more information from my websites San Diego Lemon Law and When Bad Cars Happen to Good People.
See you next time!
