Recall Alert: 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT

Statement: Hose Seals
March 1, 2015 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -

FCA US LLC is voluntarily recalling an estimated 2,211 cars globally to replace fuel-delivery components that may leak.

An FCA US dealer alerted the Company to a possible fuel leak following a pre-delivery vehicle inspection. These components had passed the supplier’s leak-testing, but FCA US engineers launched an investigation and discovered certain hose seals may have been improperly installed.

The Company is unaware of any related injuries, accidents or customer complaints.


Affected are model-year 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT coupes and Dodge Charger SRT sedans equipped with 6.2-liter V-8 engines. There are an estimated 2,012 in the U.S.; 148 in Canada; 30 in Mexico and 21 outside the NAFTA region.

Affected customers will be notified and advised when they may schedule service. Customers with questions or concerns may call the FCA US Customer Information Center at 1-800-853-1403.

Exclamation RECALL Alert: 2015 Challenger SRT Hellcat

Planning on buying a new Dodge Challenger this year? You might want to check out these three interesting tidbits—two recalls (both easy dealership fixes), and less-than-surprising news of dealership gouging on Hellcats (not so fixable). Should any of it prevent you from buying a new Hellcat or 392 Scat Pack? We hope not—the new Challenger remains one of the best performance bargains out there with any of its three Hemi powertrains.

Fire It Up! Uh, Better Hold Off On That…

In a March 2 story, Automotive News reported that a dealership discovered a leak on a 2015 Challenger SRT Hellcat being delivered from the factory. That dealer contacted Fiat Chrysler, which then issued a recall on all 2,211 Hellcats delivered so far. (And for the record, those Hellcats are divided up as follows: 2,012 for the US market, 148 for Canada, 30 for Mexico, and 21 outside North America.) Hose seals near the fuel rails have been identified as the culprit, and although passing the suppliers own pressure test, may have been improperly installed during final assembly. If you've got a Hellcat, Chrysler will be sending you a recall notice soon. In the meantime, keep that kitty parked and call the Fiat Chrysler customer information center at 800-853-1403.
