Chrysler Minivan Brake Shift Interlock

Between 1992 and 2000, over 3 million Chrysler minivans were sold to US consumers without a key safety device, the brake shift interlock. This safety device, which has been standard in most other automakers' vehicles since the early 1990s, prevents a vehicle with an automatic transmission from being shifted out of "park" and into "drive" or "reverse" without first depressing the brake pedal.

As a result of Chrysler's failure to include this safety device, there have been numerous "rollaway" incidents that have led to property damage, injury, and death.

Ironically, Chrysler has promoted its minivans for their safety, specifically targeting families with children as a prime market for sales. In its advertising, Chrysler went so far as to proclaim that their minivans are "the safest minivans in the world - not maybe, not possibly, not even could be. They are." And Chrysler did so while at the same time specifically choosing not to include the brake shift interlock (at a cost of only $9.00 per minivan), despite the fact that it had become an industry standard safety device.

Paul Sheridan, the former head of the Chrysler Minivan Team warned Chrysler executives that they should add the brake shift interlock to its minivans. If you or someone you know has been injured or suffered property damage from a Chrysler mini van you may have a claim.
