The Chrysler Group has recently announced a recall for some of its models because of the faulty ignition switch which is affecting them.
The ignition switch issue has been taken to a whole new level by General Motors this year but it seems that the Chrysler Group wants to follow its main rival closely. According to the car manufacturer, a new recall for the ignition switch issue has been recently announced by the Chrysler Group, which is affecting a whopping 291,703 vehicles. The company says that these models have been equipped with an ignition key which may not return to the “on” position after being rotated to “start”.
A scenario with a faulty ignition switch means that the engine can turn off which will increase the risk of a crash, injury and even death in certain situations. The problem is affecting the 2008 model year Jeep Grand Cherokee, Jeep Commander, Dodge Magnum, Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300. The company hasn’t provided a notification schedule just yet but owners of these vehicles will be announced shortly. The repairs will be made free of charge. For any extra details on the subject, owners can contact the NHTSA at 1-888-327-4236 or Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403.
