Dodge Neon Year: 1999
Plymouth Neon Year: 1999
Number Involved: 1,000
Dates of Manufacture: November 1998 - January 1999
Defect: The front suspension lower control arms could have been
inadequately welded between the pivot tube and the arm. This inadequate welding can allow
the tube to separate from the arm, resulting in a loss of vehicle control.
Remedy: Dealers will replace the lower control arm. Owner notification
was expected to begin during June 1999. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a
reasonable time should contact Chrysler at 1-800-992-1997.
