2015 Chrysler 200 Among Vehicles Recalled for Possible Shock Problem
- Chrysler is recalling approximately 21,000 vehicles, including the 2015 Chrysler 200 sedan, to inspect, and, if necessary, replace the shocks or struts.
- Certain 2014 Ram 1500 pickup trucks and 2015 Jeep Cherokee SUVs are also included in the recall.

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan — Chrysler is recalling approximately 21,000 vehicles, including the 2015 Chrysler 200 sedan, to inspect, and, if necessary, replace the shocks or struts, the automaker said on Tuesday.
The affected vehicles "may have been assembled using a shipment of shocks and struts that do not meet the company's quality standards," Chrysler said in a statement.
"Accordingly, the components may break free from their mounts, which could potentially lead to reduced shock damping and possible loss of vehicle control."
The problem was identified by an unnamed supplier. Chrysler said it unaware of any related injuries, accidents or complaints.
An estimated 14,300 vehicles are in the U.S., with the rest in Canada, Mexico and outside of the NAFTA region.
No information about the recall has been posted on the Web site of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which oversees vehicle recalls in the U.S.
A date has not been set for the recall. Chrysler said it will contact affected customers and advise them when service is available. Owners can contact Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403.
Edmunds says: If you own one of these vehicles, you'll have to wait for your official notification from Chrysler before scheduling service. But if you have a concern in the meantime, it's best to contact your dealer.
