Recall 19V293000

Shift Lever Cable Detaches From Transmission

Recall Details

The shift lever cable may detach from the transmission due to a failed bushing. Dealers will replace the transmission side shifter cable bushing free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The cable that links the shift lever to the automatic transmission may detach because of a failed bushing. This would prevent the driver from being able to shift the transmission through the various gears including "PARK", and may allow the vehicle to roll away, which can lead to accident or injury.

What Should You Do?

Recall repairs on your Dodge must be performed by a Dodge dealership. Chrysler will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in May, 2019. If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Dodge dealerships. They will also check for any other incomplete recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with. The Chrysler recall number is V34.
