Default Recall

Anyone know what the recall on the PT for fire in the engine bay is all about? I understand it's for all years.

Think it affects only 2003, non-turbo automatic models. Here's a small snip it from the general forums:

Make : CHRYSLER Model : PT CRUISER Year : 2003
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number : 04V268000 Recall Date : JUN 02, 2004
Component: STEERING:HYDRAULIC POWER ASSIST:HOSE, PIPING, AND CONNECTIONS
Potential Number Of Units Affected : 438391
Summary:
ON CERTAIN PASSENGER VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH 2.4L NON-TURBO ENGINES AND AUTOMATIC TRANSAXLES. ROUTING VARIATION IN THE HIGH PRESSURE POWER STEERING HOSE COULD ALLOW CONTACT WITH THE AUTOMATIC TRANSAXLE DIFFERENTIAL COVER, POTENTIALLY DAMAGING THE HOSE.
Consequence:
POWER STEERING FLUID LEAKAGE IN THE PRESENCE OF AN IGNITION SOURCE CAN RESULT IN AN UNDERHOOD FIRE.

Correction: It's 2001 - 2004, non-turbo models, automatics.

So, if I own a turbo, don't worry about it, right?

Cool.
