Chrysler announced Thursday that it is recalling some 2013 Chrysler 200 and Dodge Avenger cars built from Oct. 30, 2012, through Nov. 2, 2012.
The automaker said 1,785 of the cars may have a broken control valve in the fuel-tank assembly.
The problem could result in an engine stall and potentially a crash if a car would stall while it is being driven.
The same problem could result in a fuel leak, which might lead to a fire if the leak reaches an ignition source.
Chrysler said it will notify owners of the affected vehicles, and that dealers will inspect the fuel-tank assembly and replace any defective control valves for free.
