2011 Chrysler 200 S

Chrysler is recalling some 11,351 model year 2011 vehicles to inspect and potentially repair a steering column pivot rivet. An incorrectly installed or missing rivet could compromise the integrity of the steering column in the event of a crash.  Under such circumstances, the effectiveness of the frontal impact safety system would be reduced, heightening the chance of injury.

Models affected by this recall are as follows:

  • 2011 Chrysler 200
  • 2011 Chrysler 200 Convertible
  • 2011 Chrysler Town & Country
  • 2011 Dodge Avenger
  • 2011 Dodge Caliber
  • 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan
  • 2011 Dodge Journey
  • 2011 Dodge Nitro
  • 2011 Jeep Compass
  • 2011 Jeep Liberty
  • 2011 Jeep Patriot
  • 2011 Jeep Wrangler

The recall is expected to begin later this month, and owners will be contacted via U.S. Mail. Dealers will inspect the steering column to verify that the rivets are present and properly aligned, and will repair as necessary. Owners of the above vehicles can reach Chrysler’s customer service hotline at (800) 853-1403, or they can contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at (888) 327-4236.
