Chrysler is recalling certain model year 2015 Chrysler 200 vehicles because the driver-side door was manufactured with an insufficient wire gauge.

The affected vehicles, manufactured between May 19 and June 21, may have been built with a driver side door wiring hardness of an insufficient wire gauge. This could result in excessive heat, which may melt the wiring insulation increasing the risk of an electrical short and a fire.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that only eight cars have been identified with the problem.

Chrysler will notify owners of the problem and dealers will replace the door wiring harness, free of charge. Owners can contact Chrysler customer service at (800) 853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is P43.
