Chrysler & Dodge Neon Model Year 2000 Recall

Detroit, MI  (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway Transportation Administration (NHTSA) has announced  the recall of Chrysler Neon model year 2000, and  Dodge Neon model year 2000 vehicles because on certain passenger vehicles, vapors from the Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) system can condense and freeze inside of the throttle body when the vehicle is operated in cold ambient temperatures. This can prevent the throttle from fully returning to idle, which could cause a crash without warning.

263,278 vehicles manufactured between November 1998 and June 2000 are affected by this recall.

Dealers will replace and relocate a PCV system tube. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was expected to begin Aug. 21, 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact DaimlerChrysler at 1-800-992-1997.
