The summer of recalls rolls on, and it's not just limited to General Motors' cars. Chrysler announced today they will recall nearly 900,000 SUVs over fire concerns after federal officials upgraded their investigation into the problem.
The scary part is that Chrysler told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration they're aware of 62 fire incidents, including three injuries. NHTSA said it has now identified five reports of vehicle headliners catching fire. They opened their investigation last August and expanded it this year.
Chrysler reports it has seen the problem only in sun visor mirrors that have been previously serviced, but it will replace all of them as a precaution.
The News says Chrysler will install a spacer containing a wire guide feature that will keep the lines properly routed, preventing a short-circuit and fire.
Has anyone with a Durango or Grand Cherokee experienced this problem?
