WASHINGTON - Curt Manufacturing Inc. is recalling nearly 6,700 Class 3 receiver hitches sold as aftermarket equipment, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. 

The hitches were sold for use on MY 1997-2007 Chrysler Town & Country, MY 1996-2007 Dodge Caravan and MY 1996-2004 Plymouth Voyager vehicles. 

When the hitch is loaded to the maximum rating, it may fracture or break at the bend location where the main body of the hitch meets the hitch muffler strap. If this area fractures or breaks, the result could be an unstable driving condition. 

Curt Manufacturing will notify vehicle owners and replace the hitch free of charge. The recall begins this month. The company can be reached at (715) 831-8713.
