The Problem: Chrysler has announced it will be recalling certain 2012 Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan minivans due to an issue with the power liftgate. According to Chrysler, the pinch sensor on the right side of the power liftgate may not work, and may require increased force to stop it from closing during its final stages. This increases the risk of injury if someone accidentally gets their arm or leg trapped in the liftgate.
The Fix: Chrysler and Dodge will replace the right-side liftgate pinch sensors in the Town & Country and Grand Caravan free of charge. The recall will begin this month.
Number of Vehicles Potentially Affected: 471 Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravans built between March 9, 2012 and March 121, 2012 are affected by this recall. Concerned owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler’s internal recall number is M17, and the NHTSA campaign ID number is 12V191000.
