Chrysler Recalls 250,000 Vehicles For Engine Stalling Issues

Proving that American car companies can make recall-worthy vehicles just as well as anyone else, Chrysler has announced a recall on a total of 250,000 vehicles from its Dodge Caravan, Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country lines because the engine could stall out unexpectedly.

The error, writes the Detroit News, is that some ignition keys may inadvertently move while driving, causing the vehicle to shut off.

Chrysler says it knows of two crashes believed to be linked to the problem. It has received 465 warranty claims for this issue.

The car maker will begin notifying owners of recalled vehicles in April. The solution is to have the dealership replace the part that houses the ignition key.
