Chrysler recalls two sport-utility models

The sidewalks are slippery, the parking lots are skating rinks, but at least your trusty 4 by 4 sport-utility vehicle will keep you safe and secure in this winter of schussing down the interstate and bumping through the moguls on main street, right?

Not so fast. Chrysler says it is recalling 115,000 of its big, boxy, secure-looking 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokees and Grand Wagoneers, built between December 1992 and last summer, to repair a defect that could cause a loss of steering.

The problem is that the upper portion of the steering column can separate from the lower portion because of a sheared connecting pin; dealers plan to install a sleeve to limit the movement of the lower shaft, a 30-minute procedure, the company said.
