CATA dealers should be aware that Stellantis has issued a “stop-drive” caution for approximately 276,000 model year 2005-2010 Dodge Magnums, Chargers, and Challengers and Chrysler 300s. All dealers are urged to check their used vehicle inventories for any of the vehicles referenced above. Vehicles subject to open federal safety recalls involving a “stop-drive” warning should not be resold at retail or wholesale until they are remedied. Among other things, Stellantis has told its dealers to arrange to have unremedied vehicles subject to the “stop-drive” towed to dealerships for repair (or to arrange for mobile repair) and to offer rental cars or alternate transportation to customers, as needed. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) posted a Consumer Alert addressing FCA’s “stop-drive” and has urged all owners of vehicles with open Takata airbag recalls to follow manufacturer warnings and to arrange with their dealership to schedule a free recall repair as soon as possible. For further information for dealers about managing new and used vehicles subject to open federal safety recalls, please see NADA’s Safety Recalls FAQ.
