Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling 1,232 model year 2016 Dodge Darts manufactured July 25, 2015, to December 16, 2015 and equipped with a 2.0L engine and a manual transmission. Also included are certain 2015 Dodge Dart vehicles similarly equipped and brought in for dealer service between September 15, 2015 and January 12, 2016.
The powertrain control module that monitors the engine torque output may be missing a backup layer of software.
Without a backup layer of software, the control module may fail to prevent an un-commanded torque event, increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will update the Engine Control Module software, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.
Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is S10.
