Defective Product Alert: Chrysler Ignition Switch Recall

Hidden amidst the enormous recalls by GM, Chrysler quietly announced on Monday that it, too, would recall 696,000 sport utility vehicles and minivans made between 2007 and 2009 over a concern that the ignition key might turn off the engine.  It is unclear yet whether those recalls are due to the same parts manufacturer, or heightened attention to these recall problems.
