Recall Alert: Chrysler 200 Transmission Glitch

Fiat Chrysler Recalls Midsize Sedans for Transmission Glitch
DETROIT — Feb 26, 2015


Fiat Chrysler is recalling nearly 26,000 midsize cars in North America to fix automatic transmissions that might not shift into park.

The recall covers the Chrysler 200 with V-6 engines from the 2015 model year. The company said manufacturing problems at a parts supplier's factory can cause the nine-speed transmissions to malfunction. Cars could roll away unexpectedly if the transmissions won't shift into park. Also, the shifter might show that the car is in park when it it's in another gear.

The company said Thursday that owners should activate the parking brake before shutting off the engine, until repairs can be made.

Chrysler said it has five customer complaints about the problem, but it knows of no crashes or injuries.

Dealers will inspect and replace transmissions if needed. Customers will be told when they can bring the cars in for service.

Customers with questions can call Chrysler at (800) 853-1403.

Statement: Park Engagement

February 26, 2015 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -

FCA US LLC is launching a recall of certain model-year 2015 cars to resolve manufacturing issues that may prevent the vehicles from shifting into park.

Inconsistent assembly procedures at a supplier’s plant have been linked to five reports involving customers who could not shift their vehicles into park. Without park, a vehicle may be subject to inadvertent movement.

FCA US is unaware of any related injuries or accidents.

The campaign is limited to the Chrysler 200 equipped with a V-6 engine. There are an estimated 22,107 in the U.S.; 3,600 in Canada and 213 in Mexico.

Customers will be advised when they may schedule service. FCA US dealers will inspect and, if required, replace transmissions at no charge. In the interim, customers who own models with V-6 engines are advised to activate the vehicle’s parking brake before shutting off its engine, because the shifter may incorrectly indicate park is engaged.

Customers with additional concerns may call 1-800-853-1403.
