Chrysler Announces Recall of Minivans, Jeep Wranglers

Chrysler announced a recall of nearly 600,000 minivans and Jeep Wranglers in the United States and an additional 100,000 elsewhere because of brake or wiring problems that might compromise safety.

Chrysler said the recall will affect 288,968 Jeep Wranglers from the 2006-2010 model years because of a possible leak of brake fluid.

Some 284,831 Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country minivans from 2008 and 2009 will be recalled because of a wiring defect that can cause a fire inside the sliding doors.

The company also said 76,430 Wranglers and 34,143 minivans will be recalled in Canada, Mexico and other international markets.

No crashes or injuries have been reported from the defects, Chrysler said.

Last week, Chrysler also announced it is recalling about 35,000 Dodge Calibers and a limited number of Jeep Compasses because of a potential problem with sticky gas pedals.
