Auburn Hills, MI (SafetyAlerts) - DaimlerChrysler
Corp. has announced a voluntary recall of the 1998 and 1999 Chrysler Cirrus, Dodge Stratus
and Plymouth Breeze to inspect a brake tube that may be worn by contact with an exhaust
There have been three reports of the clamp wearing a hole in the right rear brake tube,
causing a fluid leak and the loss of some brake capacity. If that occurs, the brakes will
still function but require the driver to exert more pressure. No accidents or injuries
Service technicians will inspect the brake tube and replace any that have been in contact
with the clamp. In addition, the brake tubes will be attached to an existing underbody
clip to prevent contact with the clamp. This recall affects about 417,000 vehicles.
In a separate action, the company is voluntarily recalling the 1999 Plymouth Prowlers to
repair a dashboard warning light. The recall will assure the proper function of the brake
warning light in the event that a hydraulic pressure differential is detected. There have
been no customer reports of this issue.
This recall affects 3,700 vehicles.
Vehicle owners soon will be notified by mail and advised to call their dealers and
schedule service appointments. The repairs will be made at no cost to customers.
