Chrysler, the American half of DaimlerChrysler, stated last week that it would recall over two hundred and fifty thousand of the sedans due to complaints of engine fires.
The problem, according to the automaker, may occur when the power steering hose leaks power steering fluid, possibly creating conditions conducive to fire in the engine. The company has received over a hundred complaints including one report of smoke inhalation.

The vehicles include 1999-2000 Dodge Stratus, the Plymouth Breeze (pictured), and the Chrysler Cirrus. Vehicles will have the hose replaced.
