Mitsubishi Motors has issued a recall for vehicles containing faulty equipment.

The automaker is recalling certain model year 2001-2002 Chrysler Sebring and Dodge Stratus vehicles, equipped with beige interiors. The affected vehicles were previously repaired for a recall issue using an incorrect part. The incorrect part may not prevent the passenger side sun visor from detaching if the passenger frontal air bag deploys and the sun visor is folded down in a certain position.

If the sun visor detaches and is propelled rearward, there is an increased risk to the vehicle's occupants.

The company believes that about 140 vehicles are impacted by this latest recall.

Chrysler, formerly a parent company of Mitsubishi Motors, will notify the affected owners. Dealers will install the correct tether strap to retain the passenger sun visor, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact Chrysler customer service at (800) 853-1403.
