Recall Alert: 2013-2015 Dodge Darts

Statement: Mounting Bracket

September 14, 2015 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -

FCA US LLC is recalling an estimated 23,688 cars in the U.S. to replace certain control modules and mounting brackets that may contribute to a loss of motive power.

The Company is unaware of any related injuries or accidents.

An FCA US investigation prompted by a small number of warranty claims discovered a control-module mounting bracket may apply too much force and disrupt the function of a circuit board within the module. This condition, unique to certain cars equipped with dual dry-clutch transmissions (DDCT), may cause the transmission to shift into neutral. However, the engine remains on and the vehicle’s air-bags, as well as other safety features, are unaffected.


The condition may also be preceded by the illumination of a dashboard warning light. Customers who observe this are urged to contact their dealers.

The campaign is limited to certain 2013-2015 Dodge Darts equipped with DDCTs. Additional vehicles will be recalled in Canada (3,376), Mexico (five) and outside the NAFTA region (451).

Affected customers will be advised when they may schedule service, which will be performed free of charge. Service will entail installation of a redesigned mounting bracket and replacement of the control module.

Customers with additional questions may call the FCA US Customer Information Center at 1-800-853-1403.

Fiat Chrysler recalling 27,520 Dodge Darts that can shift into neutral while driving



Monday, Sep. 14, 2015

Quote:
DETROIT - Fiat Chrysler is recalling 27,520 Dodge Darts worldwide because the small cars' transmissions can unexpectedly shift into neutral.

The recall affects Dodge Darts from the 2013-2015 model years with dual dry-clutch transmissions. FCA is recalling 23,688 Darts in the U.S., 3,376 in Canada, five in Mexico and 451 that were sold outside North America.

The company is not aware of any accidents or injuries caused by the defect.

FCA says a mounting bracket can disrupt a circuit board in the transmission control module and shift the vehicle into neutral. The engine stays on and the air bags and other safety features aren't affected.

The dashboard warning light may illuminate if the problem is present.

FCA will notify customers, and dealers will repair the cars for free.
