New Safety Recall Advanced Communication – S51062916

June 29, 2016

FCA US LLC ("FCA US") announced a safety recall on certain 2001 and 2002 model year (ST) Chrysler Sebring and Dodge Stratus vehicles.

Some of the above vehicles may have been repaired under Safety Recall R30 with the incorrect passenger side sun visor tether.  The sun visor tether released for Safety Recall R30 was not designed or tested for the 2001 and 2002 model year (ST) Chrysler Sebring and Dodge Stratus vehicles.

The original issue is there may be interference between the passenger side sun visor and the passenger side airbag during an airbag deployment event with the sun visor in the lowered position.  Depending on the downward angle of the sun visor, the force of the airbag could detach the sun visor from its mount, propelling it rearward towards the passenger seat.  This could increase the risk of injury to front seat passengers during an airbag deployment.

FCA US will conduct a voluntary safety recall to install the correct passenger side sun visor tether on all involved vehicles.
