2016 Chrysler 200 Recalled for Problem With Chassis Fastener Joints


WASHINGTON — Fiat Chrysler is recalling 191 2016 Chrysler 200 sedans in the U.S. because multiple chassis fastener joints might not have been tightened to the proper torque specification, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

"If the chassis fastener joints are improperly torqued they may loosen and fail or fall out, reducing steering and handling capability and increasing the risk of a crash," the NHTSA said in its recall summary.

No accidents or injuries had been linked to the recall as of July 29, the company told federal safety regulators.

The affected vehicles were built from May 24, 2016, to May 25, 2016.

Chrysler dealers will inspect the joints and tighten or replace the fasteners as necessary. The recall began on September 2. Owners can contact Fiat Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403.

Edmunds says: It's time to make a service appointment with your Chrysler dealer if you own one of the affected 2016 Chrysler 200 sedans.
