Chrysler recalls 200 and Dodge Avenger for fuel-tank valvesThu, 21 Feb 2013
Chrysler is recalling 1,934 examples of the 2013 Chrysler 200 and Dodge Avenger sedans, looking for 16 vehicles in particular with damaged fuel-tank-control valves. A routine maintenance operation led the tank supplier to discover it had shipped damaged goods.
The damaged valves could cause engine stalling or fuel leakage. Chrysler says it will inspect all vehicles subject to the recall, and if damaged control valves are found, the fuel tank assemblies will be replaced as no cost.
Chrysler will notify owners soon, but concerned customers can contact the company at 800-247-9753. The company is not aware of any complaints regarding the problem, nor any injuries.
