NHTSA Campaign ID: 15V222000
Component: POWER TRAIN:CLUTCH ASSEMBLY:PEDAL/LINKAGE
Manufacturer: Chrysler (FCA US LLC)
Manufacture Dates: 07/01/2005 - 07/31/2006
Potential Units Affected: 43939
Defect Description:
Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain model year 2006 Dodge Viper and Jeep Wrangler and Liberty vehicles manufactured July 1, 2005, to July 31, 2006.
