2011-'12 Dodge Charger Recalled To Fix Headlight Problem
- Chrysler is recalling 49,400 2011-'12 Dodge Charger sedans to fix a headlight problem.
- The automaker will inspect and replace, if necessary, headlight jumper harnesses and bulbs or headlight assemblies on affected Chargers with halogen headlights.
- Chrysler said it is not aware of any injuries or accidents related to the recall.
AUBURN HILLS, Michigan — Chrysler is recalling 49,400 2011-'12 Dodge Charger sedans to fix a headlight problem, the company said on Thursday.
"Customer service data led Chrysler Group engineers to investigate reports similar to those that prompted a 2012 recall," the company said in a statement. "The campaign involved police vehicles equipped with jumper harnesses and other components that overheated."
In the current recall, the automaker will inspect and replace, if necessary, headlight jumper harnesses and bulbs or headlight assemblies on affected Chargers with halogen headlights.
The current recall involves 43,450 Chargers in the U.S., 2,850 in Canada, 375 in Mexico and 2,700 outside the NAFTA region.
The 2012 recall involved an estimated 9,688 2011'-12 Dodge Charger police vehicles. At the time, Chrysler told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that some of the police vehicles may have been built with headlights that could experience a loss of low-beam operation as a result of an overheated bulb harness connector.
NHTSA said the problem could result in a "loss of visibility."
The federal safety agency has not posted any information about the current recall on its Web site at this point.
Chrysler has not set a specific date for the recall. Owners can contact Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403.
Edmunds says: Chrysler said it will contact affected customers and advise them when to schedule service.
