On Sunday, March 18th Chrysler announced an urgent and immediate recall for certain 2013 Dodge Challengers with a V-6 engine. Dodge Challengers equipped with a V-8 engine are not involved with this recall.
Chrysler has made a statement urging owners to immediately park and no longer drive the vehicle.
The vehicle is being recalled because of a problem with the wire harness that could lead to overheating and set fire to the Challenger. Seven incidents have been reported thus far, none of which caused injuries.
In addition to not driving the car owners should also not park the cars in garages or other structures just in case the car does catch fire.
Chrysler is trying to reach owners by phone immediately and will provide a free loaner car until the problem is fixed.
Owners of these vehicles should contact their local dealer at once to make arrangements to get their Challenger into the dealership for inspection.
