Chrysler Group is recalling 2.7 million older-model vehicles to
replace or repair the floor-mounted gear-shifter assembly. An internal
investigation showed that when the floor-mounted shifter button is
depressed and pulled with excessive force when the key is not in the
ignition, the vehicle’s ignition interlock system could become
inoperative, which could cause the vehicle to move.
Affected vehicles include 1995-99 Chrysler Cirrus, Dodge Stratus
and Plymouth Breeze; 1996-99 Sebring convertibles; and 1993-99 Chrysler
300M, Chrysler Concorde, Chrysler LHS, Dodge Intrepid and Eagle Vision.
Chrysler said it will install stronger components to better withstand excessive force on the shifter at no charge.
