2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8 Problems

Honk, Hiss, or Groan Noise From when Steering at Low Speeds

A honk, hiss, or groan noise may be noted from the steering during low speed parking lot maneuvers. Our technicians tell us that replacing the power steering return hose may correct this concern, If it does not the steering rack and pinion may require replacement.

Transmission Shift Quality Issues

A harsh 4-3 downshift or other shift quality issues may develop. Revised transmission control module (TCM) software has been released to address these concerns.

Check Engine Light With Code P0339

The Check Engine Light may illuminate with code P0339 stored for a crankshaft position sensor fault. Our technicians tell us that a powertrain control module (PCM) software update is available for vehicles equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission which can correct this concern.

2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8 Recalls

Passenger Frontal Air Bag Inflator Ruptures On Deployment

The passenger frontal air bag inflator may rupture on deployment, causing metal fragments to come through the air bag and injure occupants. Dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag inflator free of charge to resolve the concern.

The Airbag System May Not Operate as Expected

The supplemental restraint system, commonly called the "airbag", consists of several "bags" that are very quickly inflated to help protect the vehicle occupants in the event of a crash. An on board computer uses information from various sensors to determine if and when the airbags should deploy. The affected vehicles may have a poor electrical connection in the front seat which could affect deployment of the side airbags and/or cause the airbag warning light to illuminate. Dealers will replace the airbag withing harness in both the driver and passenger front seats to correct this concern.
