2015 Dodge Challenger SRT, Charger SRT Recalled for Fire Risk


AUBURN HILLS, MichiganFCA US is recalling an estimated 2,211 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT coupes and Dodge Charger SRT sedans equipped with 6.2-liter V8 engines because of faulty fuel-delivery components that may leak, leading to a fire risk.

"An FCA US dealer alerted the company to a possible fuel leak following a pre-delivery vehicle inspection," the automaker said in a statement on Sunday. "These components had passed the supplier's leak testing, but FCA US engineers launched an investigation and discovered certain hose seals may have been improperly installed."

The company said it is unaware of any related injuries, accidents, fires or customer complaints.

An estimated 2,012 of the affected vehicles are in the U.S., with the rest in Canada, Mexico and outside the NAFTA region.

No information about the recall has been posted on the Web site of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which oversees vehicle safety in the U.S.

Dodge dealers will replace the faulty fuel-delivery components.

FCA US spokesman Eric Mayne told Edmunds the recall will begin within 60 days. Owners can contact FCA US customer service at 1-800-853-1403.

Edmunds says: If you own one of these cars and have an immediate concern, it's best to contact your dealer now.
