The minivan has become one of the most popular family car models. Many parents find the comfortable seating, cargo room and third seat removal perfect whether or not they are transporting a vehicle full of children or groceries. However, a recent recall announcement by one minivan manufacturer reveals that there may be a hidden deadly danger in some of these family vehicles.

Volkswagon has issued a recall for almost 21,000 minivans which were manufactured by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. The company’s Routan minivan, from model years 2009 and 2010, have been shown to have the same ignition switch issue that have affected millions of vehicles sold in this country.

The faulty switches can suddenly go into the “off” position, which cuts off power to the engine, and shutting down function of steering, brakes, and airbags. Automakers say that any sudden jarring or bumpy road conditions can cause the ignition switch to move to the off position. They also advise car owners to remove all items from the key ring – including the key fob – except for the vehicle key, until they are able to get it to a dealership in order to have the problem fixed.
