Chrysler is recalling approximately 11,400 model-year 2020-21 Alfa Romeo Stelvio and Alfa Romeo Giulia vehicles due to an issue with the fuel line sensor. The fuel line sensor housing may crack and leak fuel, possibly causing an engine stall and increasing the risk of a crash. A fuel leak also increases the risk of fire in the presence of an ignition source.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on January 1, 2022. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 800-853-1403 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To resolve the issue, dealers will inspect and replace the fuel line sensor housing, as necessary.
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.
