Dodge has issued a recall on its 2013 Challenger V-6
models due to faulty wiring that could potentially cause a fire.
According to Dodge, the recall only affects those V-6-powered 2013 Challengers built during the eight-week period ending January 24, 2013.
A total of 4,459 vehicles are affected by the latest recall, although 1,900 of these are still on dealer lots.
The problem stems from faulty wiring that could cause a short circuit. Should this occur, the harness the faulty wires are located in could overheat and lead to a fire.
A few instances have already occurred, though so far there have been no accidents or injury.
Dodge is currently in the process of contacting owners of the affected cars. They are being advised to immediately refrain from driving their vehicles as well as leaving them parked near buildings or other important structures.
Dodge dealers will handle any repairs, free of charge, and also provide loaner vehicles in the interim.
