Safety incident date:
Sept 15, 1999
Location:

the gas struts weakened in cold weather, allowing the hood to fall on my head causing personal, but fortunately not sever, injury. no prior indication of weakening. the power steering system failed during a low-speed parking lot maneuver, causing my wife to lose control. fortunately she stopped. required rack replacement and power steering pump failure. car essentially unsteerable. if it had happened at speed, a serious accident would surely have occurred. *ak

gas struts support the hood when raised on this vehicle, in lieu of the more traditional springs or prop. apparently, when the car moves from a moderate temperature environment to a cold environment after a few years of service, these gas struts will not adequately support the weight of the hood, which then falls on the driver's head as he checks the oil, causing lacerations and potentially a concussion or other serious injury. the transmission, with age, in very cold weather, can refuse to shift into a forward gear after backing the car out onto a roadway, causing a major potential for a serious accident. this very dangerous propensity should trigger a recall by chrysler to foreclose serious injuries and accidents. *ak

Chrysler Town And Country 1997
Daimlerchrysler Corporation
Safety incident date:
June 27, 2004
Location:
Bothell, WA

strut retaining bolts on the rear hatch on a 1997 chrysler t&c failed (sheared) when opening and closing the hatch. one strut bolt (passenger side) failed in 2002, the other strut bolt (driver's side) failed 6/27/04. the 2002 failure occurred while opening the rear hatch. the resulting failure cause the hatch to drop on the head of child resulting in a bump which didi not require medical attention. the 2004 failure occurred when shutting the hatch locking the hatch in a near closed position as the strut lodged itself behind the closing bumper (bolt with rubber cap). first strut was replaced with dealer replacement part by owner. the 2nd strut has not been replaced yet. close observation of the 2nd strut with failed retaining bolt showed a streak of rust across the shear plane. looks like there was porosity or material anomaly that resulted in premature failure of retaining bolt. did not notice if this was the case on first strut assembly. both old struts are available.*ak
