2013 Dodge Dart: Engine Stall Recall

June 13, 2013

2013 Dodge Dart

Today Chrysler issued a recall notice for nearly 15,000 2013 Dodge Dart sedans equipped with the 1.4-liter engine and dual-clutch transmission.

Yep, that's the spec for our long-term Dart.

Chrysler says the issue causes cars to stall moments after start-up, and that recalibrating the powertrain control module should cure the problem.

First step for us is to confirm that our car is definitely on the list.

    At least stalling immediately after start-up isn't an extremely egregious safety concern. It always freaks me out when you get recalls for something along the lines of "all the wheels can fall off without notice" or "the car may spontaneously explode" and yet the recall doesn't actually start for another 3 months so that the dealers can get the parts. So in the meantime, guess you're on your own.

    ^That's funny. Good point.
