Chrysler is recalling over half of its 2011 lineup because of a problem with the steering column.

The recall will affect the Chrysler 200 coupe and convertible and Town and Country; the Dodge Avenger, Caliber, Grand Caravan, Journey and Nitro; and the Jeep Compass, Liberty, Patriot and Wrangler.

In the United States, over 11,000 Chrysler vehicles built between April 15 and May 14 are affected by the recall.

According to a statement from Chrysler, the issue is not responsible for any known injuries or accidents.

The National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that the Chrysler vehicles are being recalled because of a pivot rivet that could be missing or installed incorrectly.

The rivet is important because it helps control the way the steering column performs in an accident. According to the NHTSA report, a defective rivet could increase the risk of injury to the driver in an accident.

Chrysler stated that the problem would not affect the way a car feels or drives, so it's important to have the issue inspected by a professional mechanic.

If you suspect your 2011 Chrysler, Dodge or Jeep vehicle may be affected by the recall, then contact your dealer to set up an appointment for the necessary repairs.

Chrysler mechanics will check to see whether the rivet was installed and aligned correctly during assembly. If any issues are found, the dealer will install a new rivet free of charge.
