More than 250,000 Chrysler vehicles are being recalled to fix a faulty engine problem, according to news reports.
Chrysler Group LLC is recalling 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country minivans and 2010 Dodge Journey crossovers to address reports that “that the ignition key could move while driving and cause the engine to shut off,” according to news reports.
If the engine stalls, it could increase the risk of car accidents, Chrysler said.
So far, there have been 32 customer complaints related to engine stalls, including two incidents of rear-end crashes.
The recalled vehicles were built between August 2009 and June 2010, according to news reports.
As a Seattle personal injury lawyer, I urge consumers who may have these recalled vehicles to try to get the issue fixed as soon as possible. Chrysler said it will begin notifying owners of the recall, which is expected to begin in April. Chrysler needs to address these issues as soon as possible to ensure no more car accidents occur from the stalled vehicles.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident related to a vehicle recall, contact a personal injury lawyer in Seattle.
