Recall Alert: 2013 Dodge Durango

2013-dodge-durango
Chrysler is recalling 734 model-year 2013 versions of the Dodge Durango midsize crossover due to incorrect seating capacity labels, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The affected vehicles were manufactured from April 27 through Sept. 14, 2012, (check your vehicle's build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb) and failed to comply with federal motor vehicle labeling standards because of incorrect passenger capacity labels. A vehicle filled over capacity could lead to an accident.

Chrysler will notify owners starting in February 2013, and dealers will provide the correct labels for free. Owners can call Chrysler at 800-247-9753 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.

The real story is they only made 734 of these cars in the four months involved. Why would this car still be a current model?

@wayneelowe,

I don't know for sure but it could just possibly be that that was the date range of the error, as in, not all made during that timeframe had the issue but it was a matter of how the stickers were placed on the car from the batch of stickers.

i can't believe that replacing a sticker now leads to a recall...how many people actually read those stickers. and if someone is considering putting more people in the car than there are seats/seat belts for, are they really going to stop and check the sticker first? it's like writing 'hot' on a steaming coffee cup in 50 languages...stupid will always find a way to overcome.
