2.59 MILLION SMALL CARS RECALLED AFTER 57 DEATHS
Fiat Chrysler is now being named in a 2008-2010 class-action lawsuit, which covers the Dodge Caravan, Chrysler Town and Country, and Dodge Journey. The Fiat Chrysler is accused of having defective ignition switches, which has been linked to 57 deaths. Chrysler is now recalling 2.59 million small cars. Congress has also added a $35 million fine for delaying the recall announcement.
The defective switch causes the vehicles to stall, lose power and it disables the airbags. The company is now advising consumers to remove all items except the keys from the key ring.
