2008 minivan recall launched

by David Zatz on

Chrysler is recalling nearly 300,000 2008 minivans to replace the Occupant Restraint Control (ORC) modules, which may have been exposed to moisture, leading to inadvertent airbag deployment. The problem appears to be related to a problem with a drain grommet which led to a recall in January.

Chrysler said it had not been notified of any related accidents, but was proactively recalling the minivans to prevent any.

The affected vehicles were overwhelmingly sold in the U.S., but around 50,000 were sold in Canada, with roughly 17,000 more sold throughout the world. Customers will be notified in September.
