The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has closed the investigation regarding the issue of Chrysler engine stalling. The issue was connected with the owners’ complaints of engine stalling at low speeds or when the vehicles were at the stop position. Nearly 153,817 vehicles were involved in this issue, namely model year 2006 Chrysler 300, Dodge Charger and Dodge Magnum whose owners have sent complaints to the NHTSA for engine stalling. The vehicles involved in the investigation are equipped with 5.7-liter and 6.1-liter 8-cylinder HEMI engines.
The automaker has received nearly 1,200 complaints, though no reports of injuries have been received. In nearly 300 of the reported cases the fuel system let gas tanks to be over-filled. That resulted in car stalling.
As a remedy Chrysler owners are offered extended warranties with lifetime coverage on the fuel tanks. Thus, the automaker will not conduct any recall on the vehicles. Besides, according to the NHTSA, the problem is a low risk to safety and again, there is no need for a recall.
