Chrysler to Recall 5,600 Vehicles for Transmission Defects

By Williams & Brown LLP on January 6, 2014

Texas Defective AutoChrysler Group LLC recently announced the voluntary recall of roughly 5,600 Dodge Charger, Chrysler 300, and Dodge Ram 1500 vehicles from model year 2013. The recall is meant to fix a defect in which components of the 8-speed automatic transmission could fracture and cause a loss of power.

The vehicles affected by this recall are equipped with a V6 engine, a four-wheel or all-wheel drive, and an 8-speed automatic transmission. According to the auto company, there have been no known accidents related to the product defect, but there have been numerous warranty claims regarding the transmission output shaft.

Chrysler has stated that the forging method used to manufacture the output shafts installed in some of the 2013 vehicles may have contributed to the defect.

The automaker has not set a date for the recall, but will notify owners when to schedule an appointment at a local dealership.

In the event that you or a loved one has been injured or worse due to a vehicle defect, you have the right to take legal action against the responsible party. The automobile industry is under strict federal safety standards to protect the public. When a vehicle makes it onto the market with defects it is important that the manufacturer, distributor, or designer be held accountable.
