Chrysler is recalling nearly 600,000 minivans and Jeep Wranglers because of brake or wiring problems that could create safety issues. The automaker is recalling 288,968 Jeep Wranglers from the 2006 through 2010 model years due to a potential brake fluid leak. It also is recalling 284,831 Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country minivans from the 2008 and 2009 model years because a wiring problem can cause a fire inside the sliding doors.
Neither problem has caused any crashes or injuries, according to Chrysler. On the Jeeps, the front inner fender liners can rub against the brake fluid tubes and cause a leak. NHTSA says the leak could lead to a partial brake loss. The minivans can have improperly placed wires that can come into contact with sliding door hinges. That could cut through the insulation and in some cases cause a fire inside the door, according to Chrysler and NHTSA.
Chrysler will notify owners and dealers about the repairs, which will be made free of charge. The recall was to start in June. The Wranglers affected by the recall were made from May 15, 2006 through August 9, 2010, according to NHTSA. The minivans were made from February 2007 through September 2007.
