(Newser) – Chrysler is recalling almost 600,000 minivans and Jeep Wranglers in the US and another 100,000 elsewhere because of brake or wiring problems that could create safety issues, the company and federal regulators said today. The company is recalling 288,968 Jeep Wranglers from the 2006 through 2010 model years due to a potential brake fluid leak.

It also is recalling 284,831 Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country minivans from the 2008 and 2009 model years because a wiring problem can cause a fire inside the sliding doors. Another 76,430 Wranglers and 34,143 minivans are being recalled in Canada, Mexico, and other international markets. Neither problem has caused any crashes or injuries, Chrysler said.
