DaimlerChrysler Recalls 1993-1994 Mini Vans

Detroit, MI (SafetyAlerts) - DaimlerChrysler has announced a recall affecting its Plymouth Voyager, Grand Voyager, Chrysler Town & Country, Dodge Caravan and  Grand Caravan.

Mini vans equipped with 2-spoke luxury wheels manufactured July 1992 through June 1993; or equipped with 4-spoke sport wheels manufactured from July 1992 through September 1993 are affected by this recall, according to the National Highway Transportation Administration (NHTSA). The steering wheel armature stamping can crack and separate from the center hub attachment to the steering column.

If the steering wheel separates from the center hub attachment to the steering column, loss of control can occur increasing the risk of an accident.

Dealers will inspect the steering wheel for cracks and any wheels with cracks will be replaced. All other vehicles will have a reinforcement plate installed to prevent steering wheel separation in the event cracking occurs. Owner notification began November 6, 2000. Owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact DaimlerChrysler at 1-800-992-1997. Also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Auto Safety Hotline at 1-888-DASH-2-DOT (1-888-327-4236).
