RECALL: FCA Recalls Over 300,000 Dodge Dart Models:

Automatic Transmission Models Are The Only Affected...

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is recalling an estimated 298,439 vehicles in the United States to replace their shift-cable bushings. An FCA US investigation discovered certain cars are equipped with a cable bushing that may degrade after prolonged exposure to high ambient heat and humidity. Should degradation occur, it may prohibit the driver from shifting gears.

The recall also includes 20,117 vehicles in Canada, 3,389 vehicles in Mexico, and 874 vehicles outside the North American market. 

[FCA] is unaware of any related injuries or collisions, but such circumstances raise the risk of unintended vehicle movement. Therefore, customers are reminded to follow the vehicle’s operating instructions before exiting; these instructions include shutting off the engine and engaging the parking brake. – FCA

The campaign’s scope is limited to model-year 2013-2016 Dodge Dart sedans equipped with automatic transmissions.
