Chrysler Recalls 25,734 Vehicles, Feb. 27, 2015

Washington, DC—(ENEWSPF)—February 27, 2015

SUMMARY: Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain model year 2015 Chrysler 200 vehicles manufactured March 9, 2014, to December 15, 2014, and equipped with a 9-speed automatic transmission. The automatic transmission parking pawl may become contaminated or the park rod may become dislodged or broken. This may prevent the transmission from shifting into the Park position.

CONSEQUENCE: If the shift indicator displays “Park” but the park lock does not engage, the vehicle may roll away increasing the risk of a crash.

REMEDY: Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers inspect the transmission. Any transmission found with contamination or a park rod will be replaced, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on April 10, 2015. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler’s number for this recall is R08.

NOTES: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
