DaimlerChrysler Has Recalled the 2004 300M
- The U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced.
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].
