Chrysler recalls 250,000 of its popular minivans
Chrysler is recalling a quarter million crossovers and minivans for ignition switch problems that can cause stalling.
The recall involves 2010 model year Dodge Journey crossovers and Grand Caravan minivans and Chrysler Town and Country minivans.
The company says in some of the vehicles, ignition switches can slip out of the “run” position while the vehicle is being driven. That could shut off the engine.
At least two rear-end collisions have been reported due to the defect.
The Grand Caravan and Town and Country minivans are top-sellers for the company.
The automaker is struggling to increase sales while many of its Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep brand vehicles remain at the bottom of many quality and reliability surveys.
