the problem: in one recall, the front-axle half-shafts may have been incorrectly assembled, preventing the shaft from being properly secured to the constant-velocity joint. if the axle shaft disengages from the cv joint, the minivan will have a loss of drive or allow the vehicle to move while in the park position, increasing the risk of a crash.
in the second recall, a component in the transmission may not have been welded properly, possibly causing the transmission to not transmit used engine power to the wheels, increasing the risk of a crash.
the fix: for the first recall, dealers will replace the left or right half-shaft assembly; for the second, dealers will replace the transmission. both repairs will be done for free.
