Auto Defect Prompts Chrysler Recall of 248,000 Vehicles

Chrysler Group LLC has announced a recall of almost 248,000 vehicles due to a defect that could cause engine stalling.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the recall affects 2010 models of Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country minivans, as well as 2010 Dodge Journey crossovers. Chrysler says the vehicles have a defect that could allow the key to slip while driving, causing the engine to shut down without warning.

The automaker said it knew of two rear-end collisions that may have stemmed from the defect. The company says harsh road conditions or driver contact with the key can move the key to the accessory position and shut off the engine.

Chrysler received 32 customer complaints and 465 warranty claims for the affected vehicles. The company launched an internal investigation into the issue last September.

The recall is scheduled to begin in April.
