Chrysler recalls 576,000 trucks on faulty gearshift

CHICAGO (AFP) — Chrysler LLC will voluntarily recall more than 576,000 trucks, vans and sports utility vehicles because of a faulty gearshift, the automaker said Friday.

"In a limited number of cases, long-term wear on the shift assembly can erode the height of the shift blocker, creating the potential that the vehicle could shift out of park without the key in the ignition," Chrysler said in a statement.

"Nine incidents involving injuries have been identified in connection with this issue. No fatalities have been reported."

A Chrysler spokesman said none of the injuries was life-threatening and "most involved cuts and bruises."

The recall affects 2001 and 2002 model years of the Dodge Durango suv, the Dodge Dakota pickup truck and the Dodge Ram van as well as 2002 models of the Dodge Ram pickup truck.
