Chrysler recalls 1.4 million vehicles

An electrical problem in Chrysler LLC's Chrysler Sebring and Dodge Avenger vehicles is resulting in a massive recall of 212,347 cars to fix the problem.
The vehicles in question involve models from 2007-2008 that deploy standard tire pressure monitoring systems. Apparently, electrical connectors in the system have been rusting, leading to problems starting the engine, dead batteries, inoperative cruise control, or even the vehicle's engine stalling.

Chrysler has stated that there have been no injuries reported as a result of the problem, but that it had already received nine reports from consumers that their engines had stalled out on them.

The vast majority of recalled vehicles are located in America, with the remaining being in Canada, Mexico and Europe.

If you suspect that your car may be a part of the current recall, you can call (800) 853-1403 to see if you need to get your car looked at.
