Chrysler is advising owners of approximately 2,500 Dodge Challenger V6s to refrain from driving their vehicles immediately as a wiring issue could cause a fire.

The issue affects 2013 model year Challengers equipped with the V6 engine that were assembled during an eight-week period ending on January 24, 2013. The condition is caused by a wire harness that could overheat, potentially leading to a fire. So far, the American automaker is aware of seven incidents of the issue with no injuries related.

Affected owners are being contacted directly by phone and mail and Dodge will provide free rental cars while repairs are being completed. The Chrysler Group is also advising owners to not park their vehicles on or near any structures until it is repaired.

The total recall figure is actually 4,459 vehicles, but approximately 1,900 are already in dealer hands.
