Vehicles Affected: Approximately 209,000 model-year 2011-12 Dodge Grand Caravan minivans
The Problem: The driver's frontal airbag may unexpectedly deploy if the airbag wiring harness gets chafed within the steering wheel and short circuits, increasing the risk of a crash or an injury to the driver.
Dodge manufacturer Fiat Chrysler Automobiles said that it is aware of eight "potentially related minor injuries," but no accidents.
The Fix: Dealers will inspect the airbag wiring within the steering wheel and replace it as necessary. FCA said dealers also will equip the wiring with additional protective covering.
What Owners Should Do: FCA will begin notifying owners July 28. Owners can call the automaker at 800-853-1403, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
