Recall roundup: Chrysler 300 and Dodge Charger image

The Chrysler Group LLC has recently announced a recall for the Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300 because of a problem with the power distribution center which might affect the ABS and ESC.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 119,072 units of the 2011-2012 Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300 vehicles will be affected by this recall and owners of the two models will have to take a trip back to the dealers in order to get the problem with the power distribution center fixed. Chrysler Group LLC said that it’s now aware of any crashes or injuries related to this problem but if ignored this might lead to a crash.

“Despite a small number of incidents, we concluded it was in the best interest of our customers to repair the vehicles and eliminate the potential for this condition to occur”, said the head of Product Investigations and Campaigns within Chrysler Group LLC, David Dillon.

The car manufacturer is saying that a plastic surround for a fuse might distort because of the heat and this can disrupt power to the ABS and ESC control system, suspending their functions. About 10,000 Dodge Charger police cars were also recalled because of another problem with the headlamp jumper wire harnesses. Owners of the two models will be notified by the end of may.
