Chrysler is recalling 12,907 model-year 2013 Dodge Dart sedans due to a powertrain problem that could cause the engine to stall in cold weather, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Affected vehicles were manufactured between March 1, 2012, and Feb. 28, 2013, and are equipped with a 1.4-liter MultiAir turbo engine and dual dry clutch transmission. The sedan’s engine could stall when the temperature is 20 degrees or colder, increasing the risk of a crash.
Chrysler will begin notifying owners starting this month, and dealers will reprogram the powertrain control module for free. Owners can call Chrysler at 800-247-9753, NHTSA’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov .
