The recall affects certain 2008 models of the Chrysler Grand Voyager, Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan built between June 24, 2007, and July 30, 2008. (You can check your vehicle’s build date on the driver-side doorjamb.) In these minivans, condensation from the air-conditioning and heating system may leak onto the airbag module. This may cause the airbag warning light to illuminate and deploy the airbag inadvertently.
The recall is expected to begin this month. Dealers will replace the affected airbag module for free. Owners can call Chrysler at 800-853-1403 or NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236.
