2013 Dodge Dart Recalls
The brake booster may be contaminated with engine oil, causing loss of braking assistance. Dealers will inspect the brake boosters and replace ones that have evidence of contamination, along with the vacuum pump, vacuum tube assembly and master cylinder. If no contamination is found, dealers will replace only the vacuum tube assembly. These repairs will be made free of charge to resolve the concern.
While driving, the transmission may unexpectedly shift into neutral, resulting in a loss of vehicle driving power. Dealers will replace the transmission control module and bracket free of charge to resolve the concern.
The front seat mounted airbag on certain vehicles equipped with Mopar trim package #13 may not have been correctly installed into the seat. In the event of a crash, the seat mounted airbags (SAB) may not deploy as designed, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the installation of the SAB and re-install one or both as necessary.
The powertrain control module (PCM) manages the engine operation. Turbocharged vehicles equipped with a dual dry clutch transmission have a programming concern with the PCM that could allow the engine to stall when the outside temperature is below 20 degrees. An unexpected engine stall can increase the risk of a crash so your Dodge dealer will update the PCM programming to correct this problem.
A total of 46 2013 Dodge Dart vehicles are being recalled because they may have been assembled with the incorrect rear brake calipers. As a result, the parking brake may not function correctly and the vehicle could roll unexpectedly, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the affected brake calipers to correct this concern.
