2005 MITSUBISHI ECLIPSE SPYDER
NHTSA Campaign ID: 15V338000
Component: AIR BAGS:PASSENGER SIDE FRONTAL
Manufacturer: Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc.
Manufacture Dates: 01/19/2000 - 03/18/2005
Potential Units Affected: 443442
Defect Description:
Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA) is recalling certain model year 2000-2005 Eclipse vehicles manufactured April 5, 1999, to December 17, 2004, 2001-2005 Eclipse Spyder vehicles manufactured January 19, 2000, to March 18, 2005, 2001-2005 Chrysler Sebring vehicles manufactured April 17, 2000, to February 21, 2005, and 2001-2005 Dodge Stratus vehicles manufactured April 17, 2000, to February 22, 2005. In the affected vehicles, the passenger side sun visor may be folded down in such a position that, if the passenger frontal air bag deploys, the passenger side sun visor may detach.
Consequence:
If the passenger side sun visor detaches and is propelled rearward, there is an increased risk of occupant injury.
Action to take:
MMNA will notify their owners, and Chrysler will notify the Chrysler and Dodge owners. Dealers will install a tether strap to retain the passenger sun visor, free of charge. The recall began on July 20, 2015. Owners may contact MMNA customer service at 1-888-648-7820. MMNA's number for this recall is SR-15-005. Chrysler and Dodge owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is R30.
