Potential Fuel Leaks in notoriously fast Hellcats prompt recall of 2211 of them by Dodge
Potential Fuel Leaks in notoriously fast Hellcats prompt recall of 2211 of them by Dodge

Past year has been the period of a spate of recalls involving all major auto manufacturers and not the recalls were related to a vast range of issues. One of the biggest   was the Takata airbags recalls which involved most big car manufacturers, and the safety bag manufacturers were forced to rethink their technology and production strategy resulting into sacking of several top executives.

The most recent recall involves the notoriously fast Hellcats, the 707hp Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger SRT. These Hellcats are hot, and the company is quite aware of the fact. By recalling a total of 2211, Hellcats Fiat-Chrysler has taken the most effective way of avoiding any accidents triggered by potential fuel leakage in these cats. The leakage may have been engineered by the inappropriately fitted hose seals in the fuel line said the company sources.

The issue was noticed by a dealer first. According to Automotive News that during a delivery inspection the dealer found fuel leakage which immediately forced Dodge all the Hellcats let loose on the environment and running free. The Hellcats affected by the issue belong to the 2015 models and there are about 2012 of them in the US alone comprising of Charger and Challenger Hellcats, 148 from Canada, 30 cars from Mexico and overseas Hellcats numbering 21.  Well, a 707hp Hellcat can be a dangerous proposition to run with a fuel leakage, thanks, heaven; it has been detected so early.  

The manufacturer states that so far no customer complaints, injuries or accident reports have been received at their end with relevance to the issue. The issue supposedly concerns improperly installed hose seals located near the fuel rail. Anxious Hellcat drivers can contact customer hotline of FCA at 1-800-853-1403, or they can wait till they receive a mail notification for scheduling the warranty work required. Wow, that was close!
