AUTO RECALL PHOTO GALLERY: 2005-2006 Chrysler Town & Country
That said, the public might have to get used to seeing recalls as a trend for some time to come, and not just for unintended acceleration.
Chrysler, for one, earlier this year recalled about 300,000 minivans for problematic airbags , including the 2005-2006 Chrysler Town & Country [pictured above], Dodge Caravan and Grand Caravan.
"I think we are going to see a few more recalls in the next few months as both automakers and NHTSA step up their efforts to make sure that all vehicles are in good working order," David Silver of Wall Street Strategies says. Silver is "not saying that either were not doing a good job before, but now that all the news is circulating, the automakers don't want to be seen as lazy and putting their customers' lives on the line.""Toyota's problems seems to dwarf the other automakers problems," Silver adds. "However, the Nissan recall could be dangerous. The braking pin comes dislodged, but it is unclear how delayed (if at all) the braking is in the car. GM's recall seems to be nothing at all; a problem with power steering where it may become a little more difficult to steer the car under 15 mph."
