Chrysler recall affects 907k vehicles

Staff Report

Nearly 907,000 Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep SUVs and cars are being recalled for alternator problems.

The recall includes  470,000 Jeep Grand Cherokees, Chrysler 300s, and Dodge Chargers, Challengers and Durangos from 2011 through 2014. According to the U.S. National Highway Safety Administration, the alternators can fail, causing engines to stall. The issue can also cause electrical outages, brake failure and possible fire. Vehicles sold in the U.S., Canada and Mexico are affected. Around 80,000 cars and SUVs from the included model years were also sold overseas.

This week’s recalls were sparked by hundreds of consumer complaints. Dealers are expected to begin repairing vehicles in December at no cost to the owners.
