Recall roundup: Dodge Durango image

The North American based automaker Dodge has recently announced a recall for the Durango models because of a problem with the seating capacity, which might be overstated.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a total of 734 units of the 2013 Dodge Durango models will be affected by this recall and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers. The NHTSA says that the vehicles in question might be filled over capacity and if this happens, the risk of injury will be higher in the event of a crash.

“The seating capacity information on the tire placard label may incorrectly state the total seating capacity as seven and rear seating capacity as five on certain vehicles with second row captain chairs, when it should have stated six and four, respectively”, as Chrysler told federal safety regulators.

The recall will affect a total of 734 units of the 2013 Dodge Durango. The models have been produced between the 27th of April, 2012, and the 14th of September, 2012. The recall will begin in February and Chrysler will provide owners with replacement labels. Meanwhile, owners can contact Chrysler at 1-800-247-9753.
