Driver's Front Air Bag Defect

In a crash that deploys the driver's front air bag, the inflator of the air bag can rupture, causing metal debris to strike vehicle occupants. Dealers will replace the front driver's air bag inflator free of charge to correct the concern.

Front Airbag Inflator Module

Upon deployment the driver's front airbag inflator could rupture, increasing the risk of personal injury. Dealers will replace the driver's front airbag inflator to correct this concern. Note: this recall supersedes, in part, recall #14V-354. 

Gearshift Position Display May Be Incorrect

On vehicles equipped with the police option package and a column mounted shifter, the gearshift cable may become disconnected from its mounting bracket, causing the position display to be incorrect. This can result in the vehicle moving in a unexpected direction, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will add a redundant locking mechanism to the gearshift cable at the mounting bracket. The recall is expected to begin on November 10, 2008. The Dodge recall number is H37.

2006 Dodge Charger Reviews

DONT BUY THIS CAR
I would not recommend purchasing a Dodge Charger. At 40,000 (just after it went out of warranty) I had to replace the lifters in the engine. I have also had a number of other repairs - overall I don't feel this car is very trustworthy.
I have had my Dodge Charger R/T 5.7L hemi for over 7 years now. I have 136,000 miles on it. I have had to replace a few items due to wear and tear but that is recommended after 100,000 miles. I love my charger after all these years. It runs great. I have the best service providers who are trustworthy.
