The Chrysler Group has announced that it is recalling 4,459 model-year 2013 Dodge Challengers because of a hazard that could cause a fire.
The problem could cause a wire harness to overheat or short circuit and possibly cause a fire. The company said it was aware of seven such incidents. So far, none have resulted in injuries.
The recall affects only 2013 Dodge Challengers with V-6 engines built during an eight-week period ending Jan. 24, 2013. About 2,500 of the cars have been sold. The rest are still at dealerships.
The problem is considered serious enough that the automaker is urging owners to refrain from driving their cars and to contact their dealers.
