Chrysler Group LLC has recently announced a voluntary safety recall of the Chrysler 200 and Dodge Avenger, because of a problem with a fuel tank control valve.
According to the North American based automaker, a total of 1,785 units of the Chrysler 200 and Dodge Avenger will be affected by this recall across the United States and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers. The carmaker says that a problem with a broken control valve installed into the fuel tank assembly has been discovered when the fuel tank supplier has found 17 pieces of broke control valves on the floor during a maintenance operation.
Chrysler Group LLC says that if this problem is ignored, it might lead to an engine stall and even to a possible fire, increasing the risk of a crash of injury. The affected vehicles have been produced between the 30th of October 2012 and the 2nd of November 2012. Owners of the Chrysler 200 and Dodge Avenger, produced between the dates mentioned above, will be notified by the company. Dealerships will inspect and replace any affected control valves. The recall will be in March. Meanwhile, owners can contact NHTSA at 1-888-327-4236.
