Chrysler is recalling 289 Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country minivans from the 2012 model year because the hub and bearing assembly for the right rear wheel may not have been fully machined, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
In the affected vehicles, which were built from Nov. 15 through Nov. 21, 2011, the assembly’s durability may decrease. As a result, the wheel may separate, increasing the risk of a crash.
The recall is expected to begin this month. Dealers will replace the right rear hub and bearing assembly for free. Owners can call Chrysler at 800-853-1403 or NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
