The recall campaign will affect the American car market. Owners of “problem” cars are warned by NHTSA experts.

Dodge recalls 173 brand-new Charger and Challenger cars off the assembly line from May 28 to September 25 of the current year in the home market. It is reported by the NHTSA. All these cars needed repairs due to incompatible wheels and brakes. Tires that were put on cars that came under review cannot provide the necessary clearance from suspension elements and brakes. As a result, there is a possibility that at some point the inner sidewall of the tire will come into contact with the steering knuckle, which is fraught with its destruction or unexpected loss of air pressure in the tire. Any of these failures can cause a serious traffic accident.

 To protect motorists and their passengers, dealership specialists will install the necessary tires on the car.

At the same time, the company notes that the recall was the result of a technical control error, and not a malfunction of the wheel itself. Dealers are waiting for “problem” cars for repairs in December. So far, this failure has not yet affected the safety of car owners: the manufacturer has not received reports of accidents or injuries.
