It is important that manufacturers put consumer safety above all and ensure that defects are repaired immediately
SAVANNAH, GA (PRWEB) February 19, 2014
Auto accident lawyer David Eichholz wants to ensure the public is informed on Chrysler’s recall of more than 7,900 ProMaster commercial vans in the United States. Chrysler cited a jammed accelerator pedal as the cause of the recall.
“Although we believe this problem should have been known prior to the vehicle’s release to the public, we commend Chrysler for voluntarily recalling their vehicles,” said Eichholz. “It is important that manufacturers put consumer safety above all and ensure that defects are repaired immediately.”
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration campaign number 14V032000, the affected vehicles were manufactured between July 2012 and December 10, 2013. During testing it was found that if the accelerator pedal is pushed downward at a certain angle, the pedal may get stuck due to interference with the pedal stopper.
Chrysler Group LLC voluntarily issued the recall on February 4, 2014, and said it will notify owners and dealers, who will replace the pedal stopper free of charge.
Additionally, the vehicles are equipped with a brake override system. In the event that the pedal is stuck, pushing on the brake pedal will slow the vehicle and bring it to a complete stop in order to avoid unintended acceleration and the increased risk of a car accident.
Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403 to determine if their vehicle was affected. Consumers can read more about the recall at http://www.thejusticelawyer.com.
