Chrysler is recalling 119,072 model-year 2011 and 2012 versions of the Chrysler 300 and Dodge Charger sedans due to problems with the electronic stability control and antilock braking systems, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The affected vehicles could lose ABS/ESC functionality because of an overheated power distribution center. This could lead to a loss of vehicle control and an increased risk of injury.
Chrysler will notify owners later this month, and dealers will relocate the ABS/ESC fuse free of charge. Owners can call Chrysler at 800-853-1403 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
