Chrysler is recalling thousands of cars, minivans and other vehicles because the steering wheel could collapse in the event of a collision, according to news reports .
More than 11,000 vehicles are being recalled, according to Chrysler.
“The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says on its website that a missing or incorrectly installed rivet could cause the problem, increasing the risk of injury in a crash.
The recall includes the 2011 Chrysler 200 and Town and Country; the Dodge Avenger, Caliber, Caravan, Journey and Nitro; and the Jeep Compass, Liberty, Patriot and Wrangler. The 11 models were built from mid-April to early May,” according to news reports.
So far, no reports of accidents or injuries have occurred as a result of the recall.
As an Orangeburg personal injury lawyer , I urge consumers to take care of this vehicle recall before any accidents or injuries occur. Chrysler said dealers will conduct inspections for free and check to ensure the rivet was properly installed.
While we don’t handle food recalls we feel that it’s important to educate the community to help protect their health and safety. If you have been injured by tainted food, you might wish to contact an Orangeburg personal injury lawyer who can help.
