2017 Dodge Challenger: Another Win For Manual Drivers

By  | 

FCA has been working on fixing some of the transmission issues that some of their vehicles are experiencing.

It was previously reported that some FCA models might shift out of the Park mode and roll away. Although the Dodge Challenger was not one of the models that were listed in the original recall, it looks like the vehicle will be affected by the transmission issue after all.

NHTSA has just announced that 7802 units of the Dodge Challenger could be affected by the same issue and that owners might want to take note as their vehicle might roll away and crash into something.

This will happen when the engine is left running but the parking brake has not been applied. Only 2017 models with an auto transmission will be affected by the recall. The fix will be a simple software update and affected owners should be getting the upgrade soon.
