50K Minivans Recalled Due To Seat Belt Buckle Defect

Recall Alert: 494,000 Dodge Trucks Recalled for Fire Hazard

The automaker says in documents posted by U.S. safety regulators that during sporting driving, the center buckle could hit the release button on the left buckle and cause it to unlatch.

The company says it doesn't know of any crashes or injuries from the problem. Dealers will install a shorter second-row seat belt buckle. The recall is expected to start Oct. 20.

Until repairs are made, Chrysler is advising owners not to use the second-row center seat if other passengers are in that row.
