DaimlerChrysler Has Recalled the 2004 300M

(SafetyAlerts) - The U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced.

DaimlerChrysler Corporation

Models: Chrysler 300M Year: 2004

Chrysler Concorde Year: 2004

Number Potentially Involved: 20,978

Dates of Manufacture: March – June 2003

Defect: On certain passenger vehicles, an internal hood latch component may have been manufactured with a crack, which could propagate and break, allowing the primary/secondary latch spring to disengage. This could result in loss of both primary and secondary hood latch function, allowing the hood to open without warning. This could increase the risk of a crash. Remedy: Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the latch assembly. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began on Sept. 22, 2003. Owners may contact DaimlerChrysler at 1-800-992-1997.


[NHTSA Recall No. 03V332/DaimlerChrysler Recall No. C29].

Important Note Regarding Auto Recalls
Frequently SafetyAlerts will list auto recalls before
your dealer will know about them. If you have a vehicle
affected by one of these posted recalls be sure and
write down the NHTSA 
CAMPAIGN ID Number.
If your dealer doesn't know about the recall when you
check, ask them how they are notified of recalls and
when the next update is due.
