DiamlerChrysler to Replace Over 500 1999 Prowlers
Washington, DC (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration has published the recall of certain 1999 Plymouth Prowler
automobiles, manufactured between May - August 1999, because some aluminum castings used
in the manufacture of the vehicle frame may have missed the required heat treatment
This has resulted in soft frame castings. Some of
these frames could fracture under vehicle operating conditions, resulting in loss of
vehicle handling or vehicle control.
Approximately 540 vehicles are affected by this
recall. Dealers will replace these vehicles.
Owner notification is expected to begin during
December 1999. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should
contact Chrysler at 1-800-992-1997.
