Chrysler recalls 15,000 Darts; engines can stall

DETROIT — Chrysler says it is recalling about 15,000 Dodge Dart compact cars worldwide because they could stall in cold temperatures.

The recall affects 2013 model year cars with 1.4-liter four-cylinder engines and dual-clutch automatic transmissions.

Chrysler says the problem was found in internal testing. The company says a Dart that had been parked for eight hours in a room at 20 degrees stalled moments after it was started. Further investigation showed similar complaints had been made to dealers.

Dealers will recalibrate the computer that controls the engine and transmission at no cost to customers.

Chrysler says it doesn’t know of any crashes or injuries from the problem.
