After dangerous reports of overheating, Chrysler automakers is recalling
a total of 119,072 of its vehicles. The recall is a reaction from a discovery
that was made not long ago in which the antilock brakes and electronic
stability control systems of some of the company's vehicles reportedly
failed due to an overheated power supply.
According to official reports released on the matter, the defective models
were made between 2011 and 2012. Both Chrysler 300s and Dodge Charges
need to have a fuse changed and relocated before they will again be considered
safe to drive. Individuals who are owners or leasers of said vehicles
can take their automobiles in for repair and the Chrysler company will
cover the costs.
The defect was first noticed by Michigan state police who were using a
Chrysler vehicle in their training. As of now, Chrysler has confirmed
with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that it is has
not been made aware of any fires, crashes or related injuries from the
overheating of any of its vehicles. Whether you were injured in an accident
