Recall 15V090000

Transmission May Not Shift Into Park Securely

Recall Details

The transmission parking pawl may become contaminated or the park rod may become dislodged and broken, resulting in the vehicle not being able to be shifted securely into park. Dealers will inspect the transmission and repair it as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The transmission shift lever may not shift properly and securely into the "park" position. This can result in the vehicle not being stable and allow the vehicle to roll away, increasing risk of crash and personal injury.

What Should You Do?

Recalls on your Chrysler vehicle must be performed by a Chrysler dealership. Chrysler notified owners of affected vehicles beginning in April, 2015. If you did not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Chrysler dealerships. They will also check for any other uncompleted recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
