A class action has been filed against DaimlerChrysler claiming a defect in the steering mechanism of certain vehicles manufactured between 1993 and 2001. Vehicles containing the alleged defect in the power rack and pinion steering system include the Dodge Intrepid, Eagle Vision, Chrysler New Yorker, Chrysler LHS, Chrysler Concord and the Chrysler 300M.
The lawsuit alleges that consumers were not notified that a fix for the rack and pinion steering gear was developed by DaimlerChrysler in late 2000. The repair kit costs about $310.
The class is seeking repayment for the cost of the repair.
