2001 Dodge Neon Recalled

Detroit, MI (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has published a recall affecting the 2001 Dodge Neon automobiles.  The affected automobiles were manufactured between June and October 2000.

These passenger vehicles, built with 16-inch wheels and equipped with an R/T package, have an incorrect tire placard. The vehicles were equipped with P195/50R16 tires but the tire placard indicated that the recommended tire sizes were P185/65R14 and P185/65R15. This does not comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 110, Tire Selection and Rims.

137 automobiles are affected by this recall.

Owners will be provided with a correct label and installation instructions.

The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Feb. 14, 2001. Owners who do not receive the free label and installation instructions within a reasonable time should contact DaimlerChrysler at 1-800-853-1403.
