Recall: 4,459 Dodge Challengers for electrical fires
Chrysler is telling owners of V6-powered 2013 models to stop driving their cars.
Wire harnesses on 2013 models equipped with V6 engines could overheat from a short circuit and cause a fire. The company is telling customers to stop driving their cars and not to park them "in or near any structures." Chrysler said it was aware of seven related incidents in which the wires overheated. No injuries were reported.
About 2,500 affected Challenger models are on the road, with roughly an additional 1,900 on dealer lots, Chrysler said. Dealers will provide loaner cars while the fix is being determined. Challenger models with V8 engines are not affected.
Owners can contact Chrysler at 1-800-247-9753.
