US: FCA to recall MY2015 cars for park engagement issue
FCA US is launching a recall of 2015 cars to resolve manufacturing issues that may prevent the vehicles from shifting into park.
Inconsistent assembly procedures at a supplier's plant have been linked to five reports involving customers who could not shift their vehicles into park. Without park, a vehicle may be subject to inadvertent movement.
FCA US is unaware of any related injuries or accidents.
The campaign is limited to the Chrysler 200 with V6 engine. There are an estimated 22,107 in the US; 3,600 in Canada and 213 in Mexico.
Dealers will inspect and, if required, replace transmissions at no charge. In the interim, customers who own models with V6 engines are advised to activate the vehicle's parking brake before shutting off its engine, because the shifter may incorrectly indicate park is engaged.
