Wednesday and Thursday are Weather Aware days due to the potential for locally heavy rainfall. Beware of flooded road-ways and never drive around barricades or into water more than six inches deep. High rainfall rates may reduce visibility and also increase the risk of hydroplaning. Turn around, don’t drown! Isolated strong thunderstorms may develop late Wednesday afternoon, but widespread severe weather does not appear to be likely at this time.
DETROIT (AP) - Chrysler says it's recalling about 15,000 Dodge Dart compact cars worldwide because they could stall in cold temperatures.
The recall affects 2013 model year cars with 1.4-liter four-cylinder engines and dual-clutch automatic transmissions.
Chrysler says the problem was found in internal testing. The company says a Dart that had been parked for eight hours in a room at 20 degrees stalled moments after it was started. Further investigation showed similar complaints had been made to dealers.
Dealers will recalibrate the computer that controls the engine and transmission at no cost to customers.
Chrysler says it doesn't know of any crashes or injuries from the problem.
