Vehicles Affected: Approximately 70 model-year 2018 Chrysler 300 sedans; model-year 2018 Dodge Challenger and Charger sedans and Durango SUVs; model-year 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Wrangler SUVs; and model-year 2018 Ram 1500 pickup trucks
The Problem: An incorrect transmission park lock rod may have been installed in the transmission, which could lead the transmission to not shift into Park and keep the vehicle from moving, increasing the risk of unintended vehicle movement and the risk of a crash.
The Fix: Dealers will install the correct park lock rod for free.
