Another day, another major recall from an automaker. Maybe we should just put a “Today’s Recall” scroll at the top of the page, because it seems like we’re posting one or two per day.
This time the recall is for 2010 Chrysler 300, Dodge Charger, Dodge Challenger, Dodge Ram, Jeep Commander and Jeep Grand Cherokee models. The vehicles have a potentially faulty wireless ignition module, which may allow drivers to remove the key prior to placing the shifter in Park. This could cause a loss of control, or unintended vehicle movement. Roughly 40,000 vehicles are affected by this recall, and Chrysler dealers will begin contacting owners shortly. The recall is expected to begin in July, once Chrysler / Dodge / Jeep dealers have replacement ignition modules in stock.
