1. FCA says their transmission pumps “may not conform to specifications” and need to be recalled in the 2015-2016 Journey and Grand Caravan.

    They thank the discovery of the problem to an examination of warranty data that caused an internal investigation of the six-speed automatic transmissions.

  2. The 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town and Country have been recalled because they have nuts on the third-row seatback that weren't torqued properly during assembly.

    The loose bolts may not hold the seatback, even more so in a crash.

    The nuts were not tightened properly when the vans were built between March 16, 2016, to March 17, 2016.

  3. Continental Automotive systems did the right thing by announcing their airbags had corrosion issues

    , but there's just one problem --- they've known about this for years:

    "According to documents released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Association, Continental knew about the defective air bags as far back as 2008."

    A new [lawsuit][3] wants compensation for injuries or other losses during that time between Continental discovered the problem and actually did anything about it.

    The law firm Kopelowitz Ostrow Ferguson Weiselberg & Gilbert has [more on that class-action][4].

  4. Fiat-Chrysler (FCA) used expired primer to install the windshields in the 2015-2016 Chrysler Town and Country and 2014-2015 Dodge Grand Caravan.

    And guess what? It's doing a terrible job stopping the windshields from falling out.

    The automaker says lab results showed using urethane with a primer that expired in July 2015 always passed the tests. However, using urethane with a primer that expired in January 2015 failed 100 percent of the time.

    Shocking.

  5. Fiat-Chrysler (FCA) is recalling 112,000 vehicles with defective Continental airbags.

    They opened an internal investigation in July 2015 to find out why a 2009 Dodge Journey airbag deployed for no apparent reason. The automaker later found 13 potential inadvertent airbag deployments with airbags made by Continental Automotive Systems.

    Recently, Continental announced they needed to recall 5 million airbags that were susceptible to corrosion. The airbags in question might not deploy in a crash, which really defeats the point.

    FCA says they aren't sure when the recall will begin.

  6. Fiat-Chrysler (FCA) is recalling over 1,600 vans because their hoods keep flying up while on the road.

    Listen, I enjoy a good game of peek-a-boo with my toddler, but peek-a-boo with the road? That's not a good time. According to FCA, the bolts that attach the hood striker are coming loose over time.

    Full details about the recall, and contact information for both Chrysler and Dodge, are available on CarComplaints.com.

  7. Chrysler isn't going to get off as easy as they thought.

    An appeal for a lawsuit claiming the Dodge Grand Caravan is subject to a "false park" event was granted after the case was dismissed in an earlier court:

    "[There are] genuine issues of material fact that would allow a reasonable jury to conclude that the ‘false park’ defect was the legal cause of the accident and their deaths."…
