Recall Date:
n/a
Units Affected:
150,000

Affected Component: Seat belts:integrated child seat.

Summary: Vehicle description: multipurpose passenger vehicles equipped with integral child seats. This is not a safety recall in accordance with federal regulation 573. However, it is deemed a safety improvement campaign by the agency.

Remedy: Owners are being provided with a video tape and 2 harness clips. The video tape instructs owners on the proper use and maintenance of the child seats. .

Notes: Note: chrysler has decided to conduct a safety improvement campaign to make the vehicle owner aware of how the integral child seat latching system works. Owners can contact chrysler at 1-800-853-1403. .
