Chrysler is recalling certain model year 2011 Dodge Journey, Jeep Wrangler, Chrysler 200, Chrysler 200 convertible, Dodge Avenger, Dodge Nitro, Jeep Liberty, Dodge Caliber, Jeep Compass, Jeep Patriot, Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country vehicles.
Some of these vehicles may have been built with a missing or incorrectly installed steering column pivot rivet.
A missing or incorrectly installed rivet could compromise the ability of the steering column to support the occupant loads in the event of a frontal crash, decreasing the effectiveness of the frontal impact safety system. As a result, the condition may increase the potential for injury in a frontal crash.
Dealers will inspect for rivet presence and alignment and repair the steering column pivot as required, free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during June 2011. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403.
Chrysler's safety recall no. L23. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (1-800-424-9153), or go to Safercar.
