Volkswagen recalls minivans over fire concerns

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) — Volkswagen AG is recalling nearly 16,000 Routan minivans to address fire concerns involving latches on the sliding doors.

The German automaker says the recall affects 2009 minivans, which are jointly developed with Chrysler LLC and built at Chrysler's Windsor, Ontario, plant.

Chrysler recently announced a recall of nearly 285,000 Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country minivans because of fire concerns inside the sliding doors.

A Volkswagen official was not immediately available to discuss the matter.
