You must not be alone. On 2 June 04 a recall was initiated for all non-turbo PT Cruisers. Recall no. is 04V268000, and covers 438,392 vehicles. Look under A power steering hose might be improperly routed causing a leak, with the possibility of fire.

It burned 4/15/04. I do not know if it is counted in the 9 fires that are being reported. It was a total loss. My insurance paid for it, but it can never be replaced. I bought it in January of '01. I waited 8 months for it. I don't think that I can buy another one and have peace of mind. It had only 27,000 miles on it. I want to know what Daimler Chrysler is going to do for those of us that lost their cars because of their design flaw.
