Failed engine cooler lines could also cause oil to spray onto the driver’s windshield and impair vision, which may increase the risk of a vehicle crash or fire, according to a recall notice issued by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
Approximately 1,207 Challenger and Charger Hellcats are included in the recall, all of which were built during the 2017 model year for the U.S. market. Only these cars use the specific hose material, so no other Fiat-Chrysler vehicles are affected.
FCA said it will replace the engine oil cooler hoses free of charge on all affected vehicles. Owners will be notified shortly and the recall is expected to commence on September 22.
