Chrysler Recalls 651,000 SUVs

NEW YORK (July 11, 2014) Chrysler says it is recalling 651,000 Jeep and Dodge SUVs in the U.S. because vanity mirror lights that have undergone repairs can short circuit and start a fire if not reassembled correctly.

The recall involves certain 2011 to 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango models.

Chrysler says it has found the problem only in lighted sun visor mirrors that have been repaired, but as a precaution, it says the recall applies to all of the vehicles.

The automaker says it knows of three injuries caused by the lighted mirrors.

Chrysler will contact customers and let them know when they can have the problem fixed.

The recall will total 895,000 SUVs around the world.

About 45,000 are in Canada, 23,000 are in Mexico and 175,000 are outside North America.
