Dodge Muscles Up With New Charger, Challenger

Power supplemented with new technology.

Tim Kuniskis introduced the 2015 Dodge Challenger, left, and Dodge Charger at the New York International Auto Show.

Automakers spend a lot of time chasing young buyers, so it was a bit of a shock to see Dodge launch into its New York Auto Show news conference with a short film filled with seniors averaging close to the century mark. No worries, though, as they quickly proved to be as young-at-heart as the typical Dodge buyer.

Chrysler Recalls 2010 Models for Ignition Failures

Key can be removed when the vehicle is not in park.

An electrical switch, but really a mechanical problem as the solenoid binds.

Chrysler Group is recalling more than 40,000 model year 2010 Chrysler 300, Dodge Challenger, Charger, Jeep Commander, Grand Cherokee and Dodge Ram Vehicles. These vehicles may have been built with a defective wireless ignition switch (WIN) module that sticks.

The result could be that the key could be removed from the ignition switch prior to placing the shifter in park. Chrysler says this could result in unintended vehicle movement and could increase the risk of a crash.

Dealers will inspect and, as required by law, replace the WIN module free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during July 2010.

Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to http://www.safercar.gov. NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 10V200000.
