Recall Roundup: Small Number of Chrysler 200 and Dodge Avengers Heading Back to Dealers

2/27/2013
The only recall to discuss this week pertains to a small number of 2013 Chrysler 200 and 2013 Dodge Avenger models assembled between October 30, 2012, and November 2, 2012. A total of 1,785 cars are affected, and may have been manufactured with a gas tank assembly that has a broken control valve.

A broken fuel tank assembly control valve could cause the vehicle's engine to stall, potentially leading to a crash. The problem could also cause fuel to leak, which could lead to a fire in the presence of an ignition source.

Chrysler expects to repair the affected vehicles in March 2013, and owners can call the automaker at 1-800-247-9753 to ask questions. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Campaign ID Number for this recall is 13V043.
