Chrysler announces recalls affecting more than 500,000 vehicles

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) _ Chrysler is voluntarily recalling about 300,000 vehicles with a potential defect that could prevent the driver from putting the transmission in ``park.''

The recall involves some 2005 models of the Jeep Liberty, Jeep Wrangler, Chrysler 300 and Dodge Magnum, Dodge Dakota/Mitsubishi Raider pickups and Dodge Durango vehicles with six-cylinder engines and automatic transmissions.

A spokesman for Chrysler, a unit of Germany's DaimlerChrysler, says a plug inside the transmission may be missing or improperly staked. No accidents or injuries have been associated with the possible defect.

Chrysler is also recalling about 283,000 2003-2005 Dodge Ram pickups with diesel engines and automatic transmissions. The automaker has found that some drivers are not fully placing the shift lever in the ``park'' position. If that happens with the vehicle running, it may roll away or -- after a delay -- move backward.
