An adhesive fault could cause the windscreen to detach from its frame, according to the manufacturer.
FCA Australia has recalled 32 examples of its 2019-2021 Chrysler 300 sedan, citing a potential fault with the windscreen adhesion.
The affected vehicles were sold between 2019 and 2021 (stamped Model Years 2019-2021).
The recall notice, lodged with the Department of Infrastructure, says: “The adhesive that holds the windshield in place may not meet manufacturing specifications, this may result in the windshield not being adequately secured to the vehicle.
“A windshield that is not adequately secured to the vehicle may detach from the vehicle increasing the risk of injury or death to vehicle occupants and/or other road users.”
Drive has contacted Chrysler in Australia to confirm if the fault has affected local vehicles, or if the measure is purely precautionary. This story will be updated when more information becomes available.
