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.
