AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (Feb. 14) - DaimlerChrysler AG's Chrysler Group on Friday announced three recalls involving more than 1.2 million cars and trucks.

The automaker said it is recalling some of its Chrysler LHS, 300M and Concorde models as well as the Dodge Intrepid to install stronger bolts on the driver's seat.

The model years involved are 1998 to 2002. The recall includes 1.06 million cars in the United States and 135,000 in Canada.

A company investigation determined the seat-recliner bolts attached to the seat frame may loosen because of premature wear. Chrysler will replace the existing bolts. Vehicles with power seats for the same period will also get replacement equipment.

In addition, 23,000 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 and 3500 trucks with diesel engines and manual transmissions will be recalled to reprogram the engine control software. The company determined an increased idle speed could occur following extended use of cruise control.

Chrysler also will recall 11,655 1997 to 2002 Chrysler and Plymouth Prowlers to replace the lower ball joint on the front suspension to prevent it from potentially separating from the control arm due to corrosion.

I wonder if this is due to a "poor quality item from a parts supplier" or if DC "designed" it this way?
