Steering-column issue prompts recall of Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep vehicles
Chrysler Group LLC statement in response to inquiry:
Chrysler Group LLC will conduct a voluntary safety recall to owners of the 2011 Chrysler 200 and Town and Country; Dodge Caliber, Journey, Grand Caravan, Sebring and Nitro; and Jeep® Wrangler, Liberty, and Compass models to inspect for rivet presence and alignment.
Some vehicles may have been built with missing or misaligned rivets that could compromise the steering column performance in the event of impact. This does not affect the steering of the vehicle under normal driving conditions.
The Company is not aware of any accidents, injuries or property damage related to this issue. Chrysler Group LLC will replace the components on all affected vehicles. This will be completed at no cost to the consumer.
Approximately 11,351 2011 vehicles built between April 15 and May 14, 2011 are affected.
