Chrysler is recalling certain model year 2017 Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger vehicles equipped with Hellcat engines.

What's the problem?

The engine oil cooler (EOC) hoses on the affected vehicles may fail, resulting in a rapid loss of engine oil.

If an EOC line fails, oil may spray onto the windshield or contact a hot surface, impairing driver visibility and increasing the risk of a crash or fire.

Approximately 1,200 Dodge Challenger and Charger vehicles are included in this recall.

What happens next?

Chrysler will notify owners of the recalled vehicles beginning in mid-September 2017. Local dealers will then replace the EOC lines free of charge.

To find out more about this recall, contact Chrysler customer service at (800) 853-1403—reference recall number T48.
