Chrysler Fuel Tank Warranties Extended

Chrysler Fuel Tank Warranties Extended

Chrysler is extending the fuel tank warranties on 2006 Chrysler 300, Dodge Charger and Magnum models to lifetime coverage.

In total, 153,817 vehicles are affected by the warranty extension and the American automaker has worked with its supplier to address the condition.

“The condition that is causing the majority of stalling incidents in the subject vehicles occurs at a stop or low speed and allows the vehicle to be restarted immediately,” said NHTSA in its summary of the closed investigation.  “The condition represents a low risk to motor vehicle safety and is adequately addressed by Chrysler’s extended warranty.”

After receiving numerous complaints of engine stalling at low speeds, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) investigated the affected vehicles, all of which are equipped with either the 5.7-liter or 6.1-liter Hemi V8 engines.
