Recall Alert: 2011-2016 Dodge Chargers

Statement: Wheel Chocks


February 3, 2016 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -



FCA US LLC is conducting a voluntary safety recall to supply wheel chocks for an estimated 441,578 full-size sedans in the U.S.

The chocks are for use, as instructed in the vehicle’s owner’s manual, when employing a tire jack to change wheels. When positioned diagonally opposite to the wheel being changed, the chocks will help stabilize the vehicle.

Failure to follow the manual’s instructions with an affected vehicle may cause the vehicle to come off the tire jack. FCA US is aware of three related injuries – all minor.

The recall is limited to 2011-2016 Dodge Chargers. Also affected by the campaign are an estimated 19,229 cars in Canada; 4,969 in Mexico and 38,947 outside the NAFTA region.

Recall notices will advise affected customers when they may obtain their wheel chocks, which will be supplied free of charge.

Customers with questions or concerns may call the FCA US Customer Care Center at 1-800-853-1403.
