Fiat Chrysler has issued a recall on 296,838 examples of the 2011-2012 Dodge Grand Caravan, citing the potential for the driver side airbag to inadvertently deploy.
The problem is related to wiring that may rub against the steering wheel’s trim, which may subsequently cause the airbag to deploy. FCA says it has recorded “13 potentially related minor injuries,” but no accidents.
Fiat Chrysler has yet to outline a fix for the recall and didn’t say when it will begin to recall the affected vehicles. Owners can expect to receive a recall notice in the mail, at which point they can make an appointment with their dealer to have their vehicle repaired free of charge.
Of the vehicles affected, 209,135 vehicles are in the United States and an estimated 87,703 are in Canada.
