Chrysler Recalling Dodge Darts

June 11, 2013

Chrysler Group announced plans to recall approximately 14,800 2013-MY Dodge Dart vehicles to recalibrate their powertrain control modules.

The company's internal testing discovered a car that stalled moments after startup, Chrysler said. The incident occurred when the vehicle was brought to a stop after driving a short distance. It had been parked for eight hours in a 20-degree Fahrenheit climate chamber.

Further investigation revealed dealer reports of similar incidents. But Chrysler said it is unaware of any related injuries or accidents.

The recall affects only 2013 Dodge Dart vehicles equipped with a 1.4-liter engine and dual-clutch transmission. Approximately 12,900 are in the U.S., including Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands; 1,900 are in Canada, five are in Mexico and 16 are outside the NAFTA region.

Recalibrations will be performed at no cost to customers, who will be contacted directly. Customers who have questions or concerns can call 1-800-853-1403.
