Chrysler has announced the recall of 312,00 minivans from model years 2005 and 2006. Models impacted are the Chrysler Town and Country, the Dodge Caravan and the Dodge Grand Caravan. Under the right conditions, water can enter front crash sensors, causing them to fail.
Only vehicles sold or registered in “cold weather” states are being recalled, and Chrysler dealers won’t have replacement sensors in stock until June. Faulty sensors will trigger an airbag warning light, so there’s no need to be concerned if you’re warning light isn’t activated.
