Chrysler has announced that they are recalling certain model year 2012 Dodge Grand Caravan vehicles, manufactured from March 9, 2012 through March 12, 2012. They stated that some vehicles may be equipped with a right side liftgate pinch sensor that does not function properly. As a result, increased force may be required in order to stop the power liftgate during final closing stages.
The power liftgate door may close on an appendage, increasing the risk of a injury. Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and replace the right side liftgate pinch sensors, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during May 2012. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403.
