Recall Alert: 2000-2005 Mitsubishi Eclipse, Eclipse Spyder, Chrysler Sebring, Dodge Stratus

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 460,000 model-year 2000-05 Mitsubishi Eclipse sports cars manufactured between April 5, 1999, and Dec. 17, 2004; 2001-05 Eclipse Spyder sports cars manufactured between Jan. 19, 2000, and March 18, 2005; 2001-05 Chrysler Sebring cars manufactured between April 17, 2000, and Feb. 21, 2005; and 2001-05 Dodge Stratus sedans manufactured between April 17, 2000, and Feb. 22, 2005

The Problem: The passenger-side sun visor may be folded down in such a position that, if the passenger frontal airbag deploys, the passenger-side visor may detach and could be propelled rearward, increasing the risk of occupant injury.

The Fix: Dealers will install a tether strap to retain the passenger-side sun visor for free.
