Recall roundup: Dodge Dart for stalling issue image

The North American based automaker Dodge has recently announced a recall for some of the Dart vehicles, due to a stalling issue.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a total of 14,821 units of the Dodge Dart will be affected by this recall and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers because of a problem which can lead to a stalling in cold climates. The NHTSA says that the affected vehicles are equipped with the 1.4 liter turbocharged I-4 engines, producing 160 HP, mated to the six-speed dual clutch transmission.

Chrysler has spotted the problem during an internal testing, when the Dart stalled moments after starting up after being parked for eight hours in a 20-degree Fahrenheit climate chamber. The model was brought to a stop after being driven for a short distance. The problem might be in the powertrain control module. Owners of the affected Dodge Dart vehicles will be contacted by Chrysler and dealers will perform the fix free of charge. Meanwhile, if you own a 1.4-liter 160 HP six-speed dual clutch Dodge Dart and you have more questions, you can contact Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403.
