Chrysler Group is recalling 667 2014-2015 model-year Dodge Journey SUVs because their tire placard labels may have inaccurate information about the vehicle’s seating capacity and combined occupant/cargo weight limits.

As a result, the vehicles may not comply with all federal safety standards, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported, and owners may unwittingly overload the vehicle.

The recall affects vehicles manufactured from Oct. 25, 2013, to Aug. 22 of this year. 

To resolve the issue, dealers will replace the inaccurate tire placard label with a correct one. Vehicle owners can reach Chrysler customer service at (800) 853-1403. Chrysler’s number for this recall is P70.

In 2013, commercial fleets registered 3,605 Journey mid-size SUVs.
