Out of a batch of 1,934 2013 Chrysler 200 and Dodge Avenger models, Chrysler is searching for the 16 vehicles sold last year in North America for a safety recall. The vehicles affected potentially have damaged fuel tank control valves and were built over a five-day period last fast. According to Chrysler, a routine maintenance operation led the tank supplier to discover it had shipped damaged goods.
Chrysler dealerships will inspect all vehicles subject to the recall and will replace the fuel-tank assemblies at no cost to the customers if damaged control valves are found. Damaged control valves could cause engine stalling or even fuel leakage. Chrysler stated that they have not been aware of any accidents, injuries, or complaints related to the recall, and affected will be contacted directly.
