Approximately 170 model-year 2019 Dodge Challenger coupes and Challenger sedans are being recalled due to an incompatible front wheel and brake package. The wheels do not provide enough clearance from suspension and brake components. As a result, the tire’s inner sidewall could make contact with the steering knuckle, causing tire damage and a sudden loss of air pressure, increasing the risk of a crash.
Dodge manufacturer Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will begin notifying owners on Dec. 13. Owners can call the automaker at 800-853-1403 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To fix the problem, dealers will replace the front wheels, inspect and replace the front tires, if necessary and perform a wheel alignment.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
