DaimlerChrysler Recalling 20,000 Vehicles

DETROIT July 2, 2004; The AP reported that DaimlerChrysler AG is recalling at least 20,000 vehicles because of safety defects, the company said Friday.

The recall affects 2005 models of the Chrysler 300 and Dodge Magnum and 2004 models of the Chrysler Sebring and Jeep Liberty.

Chrysler Group spokesman Max Gates said the company wants to inspect and possibly repair the battery cable connections on 20,060 vehicles, tighten safety belt attachments on 12,211 vehicles and inspect and possibly repair the child seat anchor systems on 12 vehicles.

Gates said some of the models may have one or more defects and some may have none at all. The company is still determining which vehicles are affected, he said.

Chrysler said it will begin notifying customers about the recalls next week. Customers will get repairs for free, he said.
