Recall Alert: 2013 Fiat 500e

2013-fiat-500e

Chrysler is recalling 491 model-year 2013 versions of the Fiat 500e electric hatchback due to a problem with the half shaft joints, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The affected vehicles were manufactured from Dec. 16, 2012, through Aug. 13, 2013, (check your vehicle's build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb) and have faulty half shaft joints. If the joints separate, a loss of driving capability could result. This increases the risk of a crash, but Chrysler said it is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to the recall.

Chrysler will notify owners this month, and dealers will replace the fasteners attaching the half shaft inboard joints for free. Owners can call Fiat at 888-242-6342 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
