Fiat 500L Vehicles with Transmission Defect Recalled

March 18, 2014

Chrysler is recalling approximately 18,000 model year 2014 Fiat 500L vehicles manufactured from April 5, 2013 through January 22, 2014.

In certain temperatures, moving the transmission shift lever on the affected vehicles may have a delayed effect or no effect on selecting a transmission gear.

If there is no effect, the vehicle might not shift out of the Park position. If there is a delayed effect, the vehicle may move in an unintended or unexpected direction, increasing the risk of a crash.

Owners of the recalled Fiat 500L vehicles will be notified by Chrysler, and dealers will replace the shifter module or update the shifter software, as necessary, free of charge.

For additional information on this recall, contact Chrysler toll-free at (800) 853-1403. Chrysler's reference number for this recall is P06.
