Chrysler issued a recall today for 14,800 Dodge Darts concerning issues with the powertrain control module that may cause the car to stall.
During internal testing, a Dart which had been stored for eight hours in a climate chamber set to 20 degrees Fahrenheit stalled when the vehicle was brought to a stop after being driven a short distance. Chrysler dealers have also received complaints from customers alleging the same issue.
The recall only affects model year 2013 Darts that are equipped with a 1.4-liter engine and dual-clutch transmission. About 12,900 units are affected in the US.
Chrysler will recalibrate the powertrain control modules at no cost to the affected customers. For information, customers can contact the company at 1-800-853-1403.
