Chrysler faces lawsuits over seat heater problems
Jun. 16, 2008
Chrysler L.L.C. is suing Magna International Inc. for millions of dollars to cover mounting costs of injuries and recalls involving heated seats in Chrysler minivans.
Chrysler blames North America's largest parts supplier for a technical flaw in the heated seats that can cause serious burns — especially to paraplegics, who cannot feel their seats overheating. Magna denied the allegations in court filings.
In the instance of the Grand Cherokee seats, DaimlerChrysler said in June 2006 that it would recall nearly 111,700 Jeep Grand Cherokees from model years 2003 and 2004 because seats could overheat and cause fires.
