Vehicles Affected: Approximately 43,800 model-year 2006 Dodge Viper sports cars and Jeep Wrangler and Liberty SUVs manufactured from July 1, 2005, to July 31, 2006
The Problem: Springs within the clutch pedal position switch that prevent the vehicle from starting unless the clutch pedal is pushed may break. As a result, the vehicle may not start when the clutch pedal is pushed down, or the engine may crank and start without the clutch being pushed. This could cause the vehicle to lurch unexpectedly, increasing the risk of a crash.
The Fix: Dealers will replace the clutch ignition interlock switch free of charge.
What Owners Should Do: Parts are not yet available, but Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will notify owners of the issue in June and notify them again when parts are available. Owners can call FCA at 800-853-1403 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration at 888-327-4236 for more information.
Vehicles Affected: Approximately 3,600 model-year 2013 Chevrolet Malibu sedans manufactured April 10, 2012, to Aug. 2, 2012
The Problem: The transmission gear selection indicator may not illuminate, which fails to comply with federal motor vehicle safety standards and increases the risk of a crash.
The Fix: Dealers will replace the transmission gear selection control module for free.
What Owners Should Do: General Motors began notifying owners on April 20. Owners can call Chevrolet at 800-222-1020 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration at 888-327-4236 for more information.
