Total Recall

PT Cruisers Recalled

A major recall from the makers of a popular automobile.

Daimler-Chrysler is recalling more than 438 thousand of its PT Cruisers because of a possible safety hazard.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says a power steering hose can loosen and come into contact with other parts of the vehicle. If the hose is punctured and power steering fuel leaks out, it could start a fire.

There have been 9 reports of fires but no injuries or deaths.

The recall covers model years 2001 to 2005.
