A number of recalls have involved Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) vehicles, including recalls of the 2015 Chrysler 200. This vehicle make and model has been involved in no less than seven recalls since 2014.
Recall Subject: 2015 Chrysler 200
Dates: July 2, 2014, August 5, 2014, February 13, 2015, July 23, 2015, July 28, 2015, February 26, 2016, July 12, 2016
Manufacturer: Fiat Chrysler Automobiles
The seven recalls over a two-year period involved numerous different defects. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), recall subjects included:
- Unexpected shift of transmission into neutral
- Improper deployment of airbags
- Random loss of power to electrical components
- Security vulnerabilities in radio software;
- Failure of the automatic transmission to shift into park
- Insufficient gauge of driver door wire harness
- Partial detachment of rear shock absorbers
Lawsuit Subject: There have been hundreds of thousands of vehicle owners affected by the Chrysler recalls. While Chrysler has stated that it is unaware of any accidents or injuries related to some of the recalls, including the 85,816 recalls of 2015 Chrysler 200 sedans with electrical problems that could cause vehicles to stall, there is no doubt that the issues with the vehicles listed above are dangerous and increase the risk of a crash. Vehicle owners or passengers who are injured in an accident that would not have occurred but for a vehicle defect may have a right to pursue a lawsuit directly against FCA for damages. Further, vehicle owners also have a right to have defects repaired, and to seek legal remedies otherwise.
Hundreds of thousands of Chrysler vehicles, including make and model year 2015 Chrysler 200, have been recalled as a result of defects. These defects increase the risk of accident and injury for operators, or increase the risk of serious injury should a crash occur (2015 Chrysler 200 airbag recalls).
Loss of power to electrical components, unexpected transmission shifts, and more can be dangerous. The continued recalls of this vehicle type raise the question of whether it is safe to operate.
If you are the owner or lessee of a 2015 Chrysler 200, you should have received a notice in the mail from FCA informing you of the recall and instructing you of what to do next. All repairs should be made for free. It is important that you follow directions in the recall letter, and take action to have your vehicle repaired immediately.
