As of June 2015, major recalls for Chrysler vehicles include a recall for 2015 Chrysler 200 sedans due to a potential rollaway risk, as well as a recall affecting over 400,000 vehicles due to potential alternator failures. Another large recall concerns head restraints that may not deploy in a crash.
Approximately 25,000 Chrysler 200 sedans with V6 engines are under recall due to a problem with the parking pawl and rod in the automatic transmission. The pawl or rod may break or fail to engage when the vehicle is placed in park, allowing the sedan to roll away when unattended. Only 2015 models with V6 engines and automatic transmissions are currently affected by this recall.
Chrysler is also recalling 434,581 Dodge, Jeep and Chrysler models built between 2011 and 2014 due to potential alternator failures. These failures may cause the vehicle's engine to stall during normal driving. Affected models include the Dodge Challenger, Charger, Durango, Jeep Grand Cherokee and Chrysler 300.
One of Chrysler's largest active recalls involves 490,000 vehicles due to malfunctioning active head restraints. These devices are intended to move the seat forward in the event of a crash to reduce the force of impact to a driver or passenger. Affected models include Chrysler 200 and Sebring cars built from 2011 to 2013.
