2012 Dodge Grand Caravan Recalls

Vent Window Switch On Drivers Door Armrest May Overheat

The vent window switch on the driver's door armrest may overheat. Dealers will replace the vent window switch with a revised version free of charge to resolve the problem.

Right Side Power Liftgate Pinch Sensor May Fail

Certain vehicles may have been manufactured 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 its final closing stages. If the power liftgate were to close on an appendage, personal injury may result. Dealers will replace the right side liftgate pinch sensor to correct this concern. The Chrysler recall number is M17.

The right rear hub and bearing assembly may not have been fully machined. This could result in decreased durability.
