Chrysler recall goes international
Tuesday 08 June 2010
Chrysler has expanded its vehicle recall to cover models sold in the United States, Canada, Mexico and other countries.
The recall of 288,302 Jeep Wrangler vehicles in the US announced yesterday will also affect 28,976 in Canada, 6,438 in Mexico and 41,016 overseas.
The recall is over a fear that the brake line could come into contact with other parts of the vehicle, leading to wear that could result in a brake fluid leak.
The simultaneous recall of 284,831 Dodge Caravan and Chrysler Town and Country models in the US will be expanded to include a further 15,295 in Canada, 3,994 in Mexico and 14,854 overseas.
This recall is related to a door hinge that could wear through wire insulation, potentially causing a short circuit or a fire.
The total number of cars recalled is now likely to be well over 700,000 and comes a week after a smaller announcement that saw 34,704 Dodge Caliber and Jeep Compass vehicles recalled in the US, Canada, Mexico and other countries.
