Chrysler has recalled more than 11,000 cars, minivans and other models. The concern is defective steering columns that could injure drivers during a front-end crash. The company doesn’t know of any crashes or injuries caused by the problem. The vehicles were built between mid-April and May of 2011. The recall includes the Chrysler Town & Country and 200 sedan and convertible; the Dodge Avenger, Caliber, Caravan, Journey and Nitro; and the Jeep Compass, Liberty, Patriot and Wrangler.
NHTSA said the recall was prompted by “a missing or incorrectly installed rivet” that could “compromise the ability of the steering column to support the occupant loads” in a front-end crash — leading to potential injuries.
