Recall
Report Receipt Date:
NHTSA Campaign:
00V180
Summary:
On non-ABS equipped passenger vehicles, the brake master cylinder piston retainer snap ring may have been bent inward during the assembly process. The master cylinder piston may be in a "brake applied" position due to the damaged piston retainer snap ring. When the piston is in the applied position, the fluid compensation ports are closed which results in a brake drag condition. If the brake overheats, brake fading could lead to an increase in needed stopping distance. Should a driver not anticipate the extra stopping distance, this condition could cause a crash.
Consequence:
Remedy:
Dealers will replace the brake master cylinder. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began July 24, 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact DaimlerChrysler at 1-800-992-1997.
Recall
Report Receipt Date:
NHTSA Campaign:
00V366
Summary:
Certain passenger vehicles, pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 225, "Child Restraint Anchorage Systems." Some of the owner's manuals for these vehicles are missing instructions that provide a step-by-step procedure, including diagrams, for properly attaching a child restraint system's tether strap to the tether anchorage. In the event of a crash, the child seat may not be properly attached, increasing the risk of injury to the child.
Consequence:
Remedy:
Owners will be provided with an addendum to the owner's manuals. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Nov. 12, 2000. Owners who do not receive the free owner's manual addendum within a reasonable time should contact Daimler Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403.

Consequence:
Remedy:

Recall
Report Receipt Date:
NHTSA Campaign:
00V033
Summary:
A manufacturing molding error can prevent the operation of the G-lock and tilt lock functions on some of the driver's side seat belt retractors. If this occurs in a frontal crash situation, driver protection from the seat belt may be reduced, increasing the risk of injury.
Consequence:
Remedy:
Dealers will replace the left front seat belt retractor assemblies. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was to begin during March 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Chrysler at 1-800-992-1997.
