Recall Alert: 2015-16 minivans

Statement: Windshield Primer

February 6, 2016 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -

FCA US LLC is conducting a voluntary safety recall to replace the windshields on an estimated 184 model-year 2015-16 minivans in the U.S.

A routine inspection of two vehicles found their windshields did not conform to FCA US standards for proper adhesion. A subsequent investigation discovered a small number of additional vehicles may exhibit a similar condition becasue their windshields may have been installed with an expired bonding agent.

The Company is unaware of any related injuries, accidents or complaints.

Affected are certain Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country minivans. Also affected are an estimated 65 vehicles in Canada and three outside the NAFTA region.

Affected customers will be advised when they may schedule service. Those with questions or concerns may call the FCA US Customer Care Center at 1-800-853-1403.

Report Receipt Date: JAN 28, 2016
NHTSA Campaign Number: 16V044000
Component(s): VISIBILITY

SUMMARY:
