Chrysler Recalls 8,000 Vans With Acceleration Problem

Wednesday, 12 Feb 2014 01:46 PM

Chrysler is recalling about 8,000 large vans due to a problem with the acceleration pedal that can limit driver control and increase the chance of an accident.

Chrysler, now part of Italian car giant Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, said the recall affects 7,935 Ram Promaster cargo vans manufactured between July 1, 2013, and Dec. 10, 2013, and sold in the United States, according to the recall notice posted Wednesday.

The accelerator can become stuck if pressed downward from an angle, Chrysler said in a notification to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

"A stuck accelerator pedal can result in uncontrolled acceleration, increasing the risk of a crash," NHTSA said.

Chrysler said it knew of no accidents or injuries potentially related to the problem.
