Chrysler Cirrus, Dodge Stratus, and Plymouth Breeze model year 2000 Recalled

Detroit, MI  (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway Transportation Administration (NHTSA) has announced  the recall of certain Chrysler Cirrus, Dodge Stratus, and  Plymouth Breeze model year 2000 vehicles because some were built with an inadequate weld between the right front brake hose block and the stand-off bracket. Separation of the stand-off bracket from the block could cause fatigue damage of the right front brake tube and result in a half system brake loss, increasing the risk of a crash.

3,400 vehicles manufactured in April 2000 are affected by this recall.

Dealers will add a brake line bracket to the right front brake tube. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during August 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact DaimlerChrysler at 1-800-992-1997.
