Chrysler to Recall Over 200,000 Minivans

KAREN BLEIER/AFP/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Chrysler is recalling more than 280,000 minivans from the 2013 model year because the side air bags can deploy on the wrong side in a crash.

The automaker says the issue is a software problem. The side airbags are intended to deploy on the side of the vehicle that is damaged in an accident.

According to a company statement, the airbags that deploy from the steering wheel and the passenger-side dashboard are not impacted by this software problem.

The issue will be remedied at no cost to customers.

The Dodge Grand Caravan, the Chrysler Town & Country and the Ram Cargo Van are among the vehicles being recalled.
