— Model year 2019 Dodge Grand Caravans are recalled because of problems related to the seats and seat belts, with more than 30,000 minivans recalled in the U.S. and about 6,000 recalled in Canada.
According to the Chrysler, the welds on the outboard rear seat strikers for the second-row bench and second-row bucket seats may fail in a frontal crash. And the front outboard seat strikers for the third-row bench seats may fail in a rear-end crash.
In addition, the second-row bench and second-row bucket seats may not withstand the required load.
The automaker says failures of the seat or seat belts can occur if the seat strikers fail.
The problem is the welds on the outboard front and rear seat strikers, and the second-row bench and second-row bucket seats may not meet federal standards.
Chrysler dealers will weld in striker reinforcement brackets on the outboard seat strikers when the recall begins December 13, 2019.
Dodge Grand Caravan owners may contact the automaker at 800-853-1403 and refer to recall number V91.
