FCA Recalling Over 320,000 Dodge Darts Due To Roll Away Risk

Fiat Chrysler is recalling in excess of 320,000 Dodge Dart models across North America, Reuters reports.

According to the Italian-American car manufacturer, the recall affects 2013 through 2016 model year Dodge Darts and revolves around a defective part which can allow the shift cable to detach from the transmission, increasing the risk of a roll away. FCA also says that the defect may prevent owners from shifting their vehicles into park.

FCA says it isn’t aware of any accidents or injuries related to the issue, but does have thousands of reports of related repairs to vehicles. The carmaker has pinpointed the problem down to a cable bushing which can degrade after prolonged exposure to high ambient heat and humidity.

To avoid a roll away, FCA says Dodge Dart owners should always shut off their vehicles and engage the parking brake. FCA will replace the transmission side shifter cable bushing to resolve the issue, but hasn’t said when repairs will be ready.

Of the 320,000+ recalled Dodge Darts, 298,000 reside in the United States, 20,117 are in Canada, 3,400 are found in Mexico and a further 900 can be found outside of North America.

Former FCA chief executive Sergio Marchionne famously killed off the Dodge Dart, as well as the Chrysler 200, back in 2016. Speaking about the duo in 2017, Marchionne stated they “were the least financially rewarding enterprises that we’ve carried out inside FCA in the last eight years. I don’t know one investment that was as bad as these two were,” he said.

    I remember the moment when I lost my job few months back from my company in which I have given a lot of time and hardwork. I was certainly not into schemes such as make money “overnight” which soon after turned out to be an internet marketing techniques in which you really should firstly get very interested clients after that sell a product to friends or anybody to make sure that they will be in your group. This on-line job has granted me liberty to work-at-home and now I could spend valuable time with my friends and family and get plenty of free time to go out on a family getaways. This job has given me an opportunity to get money nearly $22,000-$23,000 monthly by doing simple on-line work. Go and look at most great work opportunity.>>>>>>>>>>>>> WORTH26.COM
