Chrysler has announced a major recall effort today. The recall covers five models which are suffering from various maladies.
About 285,000 2008-2009 Chrysler Town and Country and Dodge Grand Caravan models are being recalled because of a short circuit in the electrical system that could start a fire. The short is in the latch of the van's sliding doors.
Nearly 290,000 Jeep Wranglers built between 2007 and 2010 are being recalled due to leaking brake fluid.
On top of those recalls, Chrysler also announced a recall of about 25,000 2007 Dodge Caliber and Jeep Compass models due to sticking accelerator pedals.
Owners will be notified this month, and dealers will make the repairs for free.
