Dodge Caliber Recall 10V197000

Right Front Door May Open Unexpectedly

Recall Details

Some vehicles may have been assembled with an incorrect lock rod in the right front door. As a result, the door could open unexpectedly, increasing the risk of passengers not wearing their seat belts being ejected from the vehicle. Dealers will inspect and replace the right front door lock rod as necessary. The recall is scheduled to begin during June 2010. The Chrysler recall number is K09.

Our Quick Take

The right front door may not latch correctly and could open unexpectedly. This would increase the risk of the right front seat passenger, if not wearing a seat belt, being ejected from the vehicle.

What Should You Do?

This could be considered a medium priority recall; this would change to high if passengers refuse to wear their seat belts. For more information, contact your Chrysler dealer. They will check to see if your specific vehicle is affected and advise you as to what to do next. Always have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.
