We have some bad news for Chrysler owners now, as it has been reported that the huge automaker has had to recall around 700,000 vehicles as a result of brake or wiring problems which could cause safety issues for drivers.
As reported from Boston, 600,000 of those vehicles will be recalled in the U.S, and a further 100,000 from other parts of the world.
Models infected include 2006 – 2010 Jeep Wranglers (288,968), with a specific issue related to a potential brake fluid leak. Other Chrysler models include the Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country minivans (284,831) from 2008 – 2009. These problems have an wiring issue, which could lead to a fire inside the sliding doors.
No injuries or crashes have been reported yet according to Chrysler, but the company adds that a further 76,430 Wranglers and 34,143 minivans are also being recalled in Mexico, Canada and other international markets.
If you own one of the models listed above, Chrysler said they will be getting in contact with owners soon. The recall will be starting later on this month, and repairs will be made free of charge.
