Dodge Challenger Recalled V6 Due to Fire Risk

Posted

Owners are asked not to drive their Dodge Challengers in the event they were economical and bought the V6 model. Doesn’t that make you automatically think to yourself, should of bought the V8! No but on a serious note, anyone that owns a 2013 model, built November 2012 to January 2013 needs to stop driving it and park it away from buildings! Chrysler put out that statement, they are concerned with the wiring harness, as it can short circuit and lead to fire.

They are estimating that 4,459 cars are potentially effected by this recall. Not to worry though, 43% of that recall are still sitting on dealer lots. For once we can say the sale of Dodge is helping them solve this issue, can you imagine they sold a lot of cars? There would be a lot of combustible cars out on the road, parked, away from buildings; right now. I feel a lot better knowing they are on dealer lots ready to burn, there.

Anyway check out the press release by clicking read more.
