Dodge Challenger AWD At Risk Thanks To Reputation Of FCA

By  | 

FCA hasn’t been free from recalls and the latest to join the list are the Chrysler 300 and the Dodge Charger. For now the Dodge Challenger AWD isn’t included, but it may be at risk thanks to the reputation of FCA.

The Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300 are being recalled thanks to the front propshaft bolts, these are said to be at risk of coming loose and this may allow the driveshaft at the front to disconnect. The issue is also affecting vehicles whose buyers have chosen the all-wheel drive version.

At the moment the FCA has recalled 75,000 units of the Charger and Chrysler 300 that was built between 2014 and 2017 and these vehicles will have their front propshaft bolts replaced. In the US 69,000 vehicles have been recalled, 5, 312 in Canada and 347 from North America.

The FCA did say that there hasn’t been any accidents due to the recalls, it has been said that the issue was found due to a review of the warranty data and there was a resulting investigation.

Those with the Dodge Challenger are lucky as they have been spared the recall even though it does come with the all-wheel drive option.

This is not to say that the Dodge Challenger is totally in the clear as it has only just started arriving at dealers, so it may be too soon to tell.
