The North American based automaker Chrysler has recently announced a recall for the 2012 Dodge Chargers and the Chrysler 300s, because of a problem with the tire pressure monitoring system.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 303 units of the 2012 Dodge Charger and the 2012 Chrysler 300 models have to be driven back to the dealers because of a tire pressure monitoring system issue. The NHTSA is saying that the vehicles have a tire pressure monitoring system problem which, if ignored, can lead to under-inflated tires. Chryslers says that no reports of injuries or accidents have been received because of this problem.
“The tire pressure monitoring system does not warn the driver when a tire is 25 percent below the recommended pressure. Under-inflated tires can result in tire overloading and overheating, which could lead to a blowout and possible crash”, as the NHTSA is saying in its recalls summary of the problem.
Owners of the above mentioned models will have to take a trip back to the dealers where the problem will be fixed free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in February and for any questions about this issue owners can contact Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403.
