Chrysler is telling owners of certain V-6-equipped Dodge Challengers to stop driving their cars until a wiring issue can be fixed. The automaker is voluntarily recalling approximately 2,500 model-year 2013 versions of the coupe to address possible short circuiting.

"This condition could cause a wire harness to overheat and possibly lead to fire. Chrysler Group is aware of seven such incidents. None caused injury," the automaker said in a statement. The automaker also advises owners not to park affected vehicles in or near any structure.

According to Chrysler, a total of 4,459 vehicles are affected, but 1,900 are at dealerships. The Challengers that are part of the recall were built during an eight-week period ending Jan. 24, 2013, Chrysler reports.

Chrysler is notifying owners via phone and mail. The automaker is advising owners of affected vehicles to stop driving their cars and contact their dealership immediately; free loaners will be provided. Owners can call Chrysler at 800-247-9753 for more information.
