WASHINGTON (AP) -- Chrysler is recalling about 250,000 vehicles to fix potential engine stalling.
The company says it will recall 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country minivans and 2010 Dodge Journey crossovers in the wake of reports that the ignition key could move while driving and cause the engine to shut off.
Chrysler says if the engine shuts off while driving, it could increase the risk of a crash. The vehicles were built between August 2009 and June 2010.
The auto company told the government it had received 32 customer complaints and was aware of two rear-end crashes.
The recall is expected to begin in April. Owners can call Chrysler at (800) 853-1403.
