2010 Chrysler 300

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.

Questions? The brands share a common customer service hotline for the U.S., which is (800) 992-1997.

    What’s the big deal? I used to be able to do the same thing with my 66 Mustang. Hell, when the carb was out of adjustment all I had to do was gas it too hard and the engine would shut off. I never went crying to the dealer to recall it. Drivers have all turned into a bunch of babies who don’t know how to drive anymore.
    Oh ya, why is it you can’t just step on the brake or turn the key off on a “run-away” Prius?
    Everyone should be required to drive a beat up 1970’s pickup with the power steering pump going out for at least a month before they are allowed to get a driver’s license.
