FCA Recalls 2,211 Challenger & Charger SRT Hellcats Over Possible Fuel Leak

Planning your next highway rolling start drag race Youtube video? Not so fast. In fact, better check in with Dodge in order to see if your hose seals have been properly installed.

FCA US LLC (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles) is voluntarily recalling an estimated 2,211 cars globally in order to replace fuel delivery components that may end up causing a leak.

FCA US was first put on notice by a dealer who warned of a possible fuel leak following a pre-delivery vehicle inspection. Even though the components had passed the supplier’s leak tests, FCA US engineers launched an investigation and discovered that certain hose seals may have been improperly installed.

The only affected models are said to be the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT and the 2015 Dodge Charger SRT, equipped with the company’s 6.2 liter V8 unit. For some reason FCA decided to leave out the ‘Hellcat’ moniker from this press release, as the non-Hellcat, less powerful SRT versions feature a 6.4 liter V8.

If they left out the name on purpose, it was probably because right now, the Hellcat is both an on and an off-line world-wide sensation. Marketing-wise, it may help protect its image. But then again, it could all have been accidental since both the SRT 392 and the SRT Hellcat are just two different ‘SRT‘ versions.

We’ll go ahead and give FCA/Dodge a pass on this one, since it’s probably the owners of these cars who’ll end up not giving them a pass.

Currently there are an estimated 2,012 Hellcats in the US, 148 in Canada, 30 in Mexico and 21 outside of North America.

Affected customers will be notified and advised on when they may service their car.
