The Beat Goes On as Chrysler, Ford Issue Recall
It’s become even harder to find an automaker who hasn’t issued a major recall this year, as Chrysler and Ford just announced a planned recall of some 54,000 vehicles today.
Ford is recalling over 30,000 2010 Transit Connect vans, in order to replace pushpins that hold the liner above the drivers’ head. According to the company, government testing revealed that it failed to meet federal safety standards. Ford will begin their recall this month.
Chrysler is recalling around 22,000 SUVs and trucks in order to fix brake tubes that can lead to a loss of brake fluid and potentially causing a crash. Affected models include certain 2010 Dodge Nitro, Dodge Ram, Jeep Liberty, and Jeep Wranglers. According to Chrysler, it will start notifying owners in August. This is yet another blow for Chrysler, who recalled almost a million vehicles in early June.
