All you owners of Chrysler's 2007-2008 Sebring convertibles and Dodge Avengers will soon be getting a recall notices from Chrysler. The letters will warn owners of those cars of a door latch problem that could potentially lead to unbelted passengers being dumped into the road during a crash. Dealers are instructed to fix both front doors with a "secondary retention feature."

You lucky 2008 AWD Avenger owners will either get longer letters or another letter entirely, to inform you of another problem with your cars. While your door latches are being worked on, your dealer's mechanics will be replacing faulty fuel tank retention straps that could break and cause fuel to leak out, which you would then roll around in after being dumped in the road when your door opens -- something few drivers consider a good thing.

Both recall campaigns are expected to begin sometime this month.
