There are no reports of injuries or accidents thus far.
The Fix: Chrysler will recall affected models of the 2013 Dodge Dart to reprogram the powertrain control module.
Number Of Vehicles Potentially Affected: 12,900 2013 Dodge Dart sedans with the 1.4-liter engine and dual-clutch transmission. Another 1900 affected cars are in Canada, five are in Mexico, and 16 are outside of North America.
Earlier this year, Chrysler recalled a small batch of 2013 Dodge Dart sedans because the parking brake may not have worked properly.
