RECALL ALERT: Chrysler, Volkswagen Issue Large Recalls

WASHINGTON (AP) - Chrysler is recalling more than 367,000 minivans to address potential accidental air bag deployments. Volkswagen is recalling more than 228,000 vehicles to address potential fuel leaks.

Chrysler says its recall affects 2008 model year Chrysler Town and Country and Dodge Grand Caravan minivans.

The automaker says water could leak near the heating and air conditioner drain. That could cause the air bag warning light to go off and deploy the air bag by accident.

Volkswagen says its recall affects 2007-2009 model year Golf, Jetta, Jetta Sportwagen, Rabbit and 2006-2010 New Beetle small cars.

VW says a small plastic tab in the windshield wiper fluid reservoir could rub against a fuel supply line under the hood. A fuel leak could develop and lead to fires.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - Initiative-1639 has been the root of controversy ever since supporters began asking for signatures. It became even more complicated when the Washington Supreme Court overturned a Thurston County judges decision after the judge initially threw out over 300,000 signatures saying the petition didn't follow election law claiming it was unreadable.
