October 16, 2014 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -
Chrysler Group is voluntarily recalling approximately 470,000 cars and SUVs globally to resolve an alternator issue.
The action will eliminate a condition that may potentially drain the battery, leading to loss of electrical power which may increase steering effort, decrease brake effectiveness, cause stability-control deactivation, stalling and -- in the most severe case -- initiate fire at the alternator. Chrysler Group is unaware of any related injuries or incidents involving fire. The Company is aware of one accident that was potentially related to this campaign.
The recall is limited to vehicles equipped with electric hydraulic steering and 3.6-liter V-6 engines. Affected are model-year 2011-2014 Chrysler 300 and Dodge Charger sedans, Dodge Challenger coupes, Dodge Durango SUVs and model-year 2012-2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs.
An estimated 434,581 are in the U.S.; 16,080 are in Canada; 2,335 are in Mexico and 17,000 are outside the NAFTA region.
All affected customers will be notified next month by Chrysler Group. Service cost will be borne by the Company.
Customers with questions may call Chrysler Group’s Customer Information Center at 1-800-853-1403.
