Wiring problem spurs Chrysler recall of SUVs
Chrysler is recalling 895,000 SUVs for fire risk. The problem: the lights in the vanity mirrors.
The company said that the recalled vehicles had previously had their vanity mirrors repaired, but the wiring may not have been correctly reassembled by the dealer, posing a fire risk.
Chrysler said there were three injuries tied to the problem, all vehicles which had been serviced are included in the recall.
Some of these vehicles were included in a previous recall of 870,000 Grand Cherokees and Durangos to fix a brake problem.
The industry has recalled a record number of vehicles this year.
General Motors alone has recalled nearly 30 million vehicles and has faced harsh criticism after admitting that it had failed to recall millions of vehicles with faulty ignition switches tied to at least 13 deaths, even though its knew of the problem a decade earlier.
