Chrysler Group LLC announced that it is recalling 11,351 units across its Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep brands due to an incorrectly installed steering column.

The recall involves the 2011 Chrysler 200, Chrysler 200 Convertible, Chrysler Town & Country, Dodge Avenger, Dodge Nitro, Dodge Caliber, Dodge Grand Caravan, Jeep Wrangler, Jeep Liberty, Jeep Compass and Jeep Patriot. The affected vehicles were produced from April 13 to May 6.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said that in some of the vehicles, the steering column may have been improperly installed and could either be missing or have an incorrectly installed pivot rivet.
