Bad part brings 2010 minivan recall

by David Zatz on

Chrysler Town & Country - Dodge Caravan minivans

Chrysler is recalling nearly a quarter of a million Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country minivans built between August 2009 and June 2010, because an ignition switch made in Mexico by Continental may move on rough roads, cutting power to the engine.

There have been 32 complaints and 465 warranty claims due to the faulty part so far; two collisions have been reported.

Owners will be notified in April, once sufficient replacement parts are available, and the ignition key housing will be replaced.

The minivans were redesigned for 2011.
