It has been determined the fuel tank in these vehicles is at risk of leakage during a rear end collision. To correct this concern dealers will inspect the rear of the vehicle and perform one of the following: A Chrysler designed tow hitch will be installed on vehicles not equipped with a tow hitch, provided the condition of the vehicles can support support proper installation. The tow hitch on vehicles already equipped will be inspected and replaced and/or repaired as necessary, again provided the vehicle is sound and can support proper instillation.
Certain vehicles sold in, or currently registered in, states where road salt is commonly used to de-ice the roads are being recalled because the rear suspension lower control arm may fracture due to excessive corrosion. A fracture of the rear lower control arm may result in a loss of vehicle control, which can lead to a vehicle crash. Dealers will replace the rear lower control arms on all affected vehicles originally sold in, or currently registered in the National Highway Traffic & Safety Administration (NHTSA) defined "Salt Belt" states. The Chrysler recall number is L27.
