The hood may open unexpectedly when driving, due to the hood latch becoming loose. This could impede driver's vision and cause an accident.

What Should You Do?

Recalls on your Chrysler vehicle must be performed by a Chrysler or Dodge dealership. Chrysler will begin notifying known owners of affected vehicles in October 2015. If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Chrysler or Dodge 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.
