Engine Debris Issues Lead to Chrysler Recall

Driving safely is an important part of road etiquette to keep you and your passengers out of harm's way, but also those outside in other vehicles as well as pedestrians on their way to their next destination. Stopping where necessary, using turn signals, keeping an eye on your blind stop; all of these are crucial to staying safe. However, occasionally problems will occur that we can't control, and that's when the automaker issues a recall to fix the issue. Unfortunately, that's what we're coming to you about today.


The Chrysler Group has announced a recall for a small number of vehicles across four models equipped with 2.4-liter four-cylinder engines. 552 units total of the 2013 Dodge Avenger, 2013 Chrysler 200, 2014 Jeep Compass and 2014 Jeep Patriot are subject to this announcement.


The problem has to do with the engine, specifically that debris could make its way into the balance shaft bearings. This could lead to a drop in oil pressure, the engine stalling while in motion, or even complete engine failure. If you receive notification from the automaker about this recall, please read on.
