Check The Auto Recall List.

Updated on November 13, 2017

Dedicated To The Car

I am a automotive enthusiast, so I love all sorts of vehicles. And as a proud owner of a 2012 Dodge Charger and a 2015 Chrysler 200, I am a supporter of all things Dodge. My uncle owns a Ram, My brother owns a Magnum. One of my best friends and his fiancé own a 2015 Jeep Liberty (thanks to my influence, of course). My sister owns a Chrysler 300. The list goes on and on.

And so when I learn of any recalls or issues with any of these vehicles, I feel obligated to let my family and friends know so they can have piece of mind and safely enjoy their cars. Recalls are a fundamental part of any manufacturing industry. But for some reason, in the last 25 years or so, the automotive industry is suffering from a issue of low-quality manufacturing processes and procedures that the automakers and the customer will be the victims of. These recall issues are directly affecting the reputations of companies like GM, Honda, Toyota and Chrysler and bring into question whether or not these companies build safe, high-quality vehicles.

So, for you and those you know and love, here is a list of a few recalls on some of the line of Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep vehicles.


Beauty is skin deep.

The Alternator

Chrysler Group LLC is recalling certain model year 2011 to 2014 Chrysler 300, Charger, Challenger, and Durango; and 2012-2014 Grand Cherokee vehicles manufactured April 22, 2010, to January 2, 2014, and equipped with a 3.6L V-6 engine with a 160 amp alternator. The alternator may suddenly fail in these vehicles, causing the vehicle to stall without warning, increasing the risk of a crash and/or catch fire. Chrysler was expected to begin notifying owners of this recall on November 28, 2014. Chrysler's number for this recall is P60.

This is a recall that I am all to familiar with as I currently own a 2013 Charger that the alternator failed while I was driving home on the highway. The power cable also was destroyed as a direct result of the defective alternator. I was fortunate to have bought my Charger from Don Davis Auto Group in Arlington, Texas and the team their took great care of me and my car.

Leaking Fuel

Certain model year 2015 Challenger SRT and Charger SRT vehicles manufactured September 18, 2014, to February 5, 2015 equipped with a 6.2L supercharged engine are being recalled because O-ring seal and fuel rail crossover hose damage may result in the fuel rail hose connection leaking fuel. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source such as a hot engine or related exhaust components increases the risk of a vehicle fire.
Chrysler will notify owners and dealers will replace the engine fuel rail injector crossover hose, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin April 24, 2015. Chrysler's number for this recall is R07.

ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System

Chrysler has recalled certain model year 2011 and 2012 Charger and Chrysler 300 vehicles because these vehicles may lose abs/esc system functions due to an overheated power distribution center. This could lead to a malfunctioning of the braking system and a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash. Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will relocate the abs/esc system fuse, free of charge. The safety recall was expected to begin May 2012. Chrysler’s recall number is m10.

Heated Power Windows

This recall covers about 313,236 units of the 20011-2013 Jeep Wrangler built between February 2010, and July 2013. An electrical connection could corrode the wiring and cause a short in models with heated power side mirrors. This component could malfunction and potentially cause a fire. Extensive testing showed that water could make contact with the wiring connection and caused the corrosion. To fix the issue, dearlers will relocate the wiring connection and will add water shielding and dielectric grease compound to the area.

Suspension & Shocks

Chrysler is also recalling approximately 21,000 2014 Ram 1500, 2015 Jeep Cherokee and 2015 Chrysler 200 model vehicles to inspect and potentially replace their shocks and/or struts. Its was discovered that the suspension components could "break free from their mounts, which could potentially lead to a malfunction and a reduced shock damping and possible loss of vehicle control." Chrysler will replace the affected components free of charge.

Parking Brake

Chrysler has recalled almost 26,000 of its 2015 Chrysler 200 sedans after it was reported that the cars will not shift into park, causing the vehicle to roll. Vehicles equipped with the 3.6-liter V6 are only affected by the recall sofar, which includes both front-wheel drive and all-wheel-drive models. The affected vehicles were built between March 2014 and September 2014 and a little over 22,000 vehicles were sold in the U.S. 3,800+ remaining vehicles went to Mexico and Canada.

Chrysler has stated that the recall is a result of "inconsistent assembly procedures" at a supplier's factory, and Chrysler will replace the transmissions of any vehicles directly affected by the incorrect assembly or defective components. Owners are being instructed to engage the vehicle's parking brake before shutting off the engine, because the shifter may incorrectly indicate that the vehicle is actually in park.

Air Bags

Fiat Chrysler has expanded its recall of vehicles equipped with Takata airbags. The 3.3 million vehicles were built between 2004 and 2007, with various models, including the Dodge Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500, Durango and the Chrysler 300. Dodge Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 pickups, Dodge Ram 3500 Chassis Cabs, Dodge Durango and Chrysler Aspen full-size SUVs, Chrysler 300 and Dodge Charger full-size sedans, Dodge Magnum full-size station wagons, Mitsubishi Raider and Dodge Dakota small pickups, all equipped with the Takata manufactured airbags that could rupture and potentially send shrapnel and debris flying into the face and body of both the driver and front seat passenger.
