Chrysler is recalling more than 11,000 cars, minivans and other models because their steering could fail.

The company tells federal safety regulators that it doesn't know of any crashes or injuries caused by the problem.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says on its website that a missing or incorrectly installed rivet could cause a loss of steering, increasing the risk of a crash.

The recall includes the 2011 Chrysler 200 and Town and Country; the Dodge Avenger, Caliber, Caravan, Journey and Nitro; and the Jeep Compass, Liberty, Patriot and Wrangler. The 11 models were built from mid-April to early May.

Dealers will check to make sure the rivet was installed correctly and make repairs free of charge. The company plans to begin notifying dealers and owners in July.

A rivet? When is a rivet ever used on any part of the steering system? Leave it to Chrysler.
