Chrysler Group LLC is recalling around 250,000 vehicles to fix a potential design defect that could cause engine stalling.
The Michigan company says it will recall Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country minivans and Dodge Journey crossover sedans due to a design defect that could move the key while driving and cause sudden engine shut down. The company says if the engine shuts off while driving, it could increase the risk of a crash.
The recall affects vehicles built between August 2009 and June 2010, and sold in the 2010 model year.
The automaker says it has received 32 customer complaints about the defect. Chrysler says it is aware of at least two rear-end crashes linked to the engine shut off problem.
The recall is scheduled to begin in April.
