2009 Dodge Challenger AIR BAGS:FRONTAL:DRIVER SIDE INFLATOR MODULE NHTSA Campaign #15V444000
Summary: Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain model year 2008-2010 Dodge Challenger vehicles manufactured September 19, 2007, to October 29, 2010. The affected vehicles are equipped with a dual-stage driver frontal air bag that may be susceptible to moisture intrusion which, over time, could cause the inflator to rupture.
Consequence: In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver's frontal air bag, the inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking the driver or other occupants resulting in serious injury or death.
Actions: Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will replace the driver's frontal air bag inflator, free of charge. Parts to remedy the vehicles are not currently available. Interim notices were mailed to owners beginning on July 24, 2015. Owners will be sent a second notice when remedy parts become available. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is R37.

2009 Dodge Challenger WHEELS:LUGS/NUTS/BOLTS NHTSA Campaign #09V420000
Summary: Chrysler is recalling certain model year 2009 through 2010 passenger vehicles equipped with rear wheel drive. These vehicles may have been built without a front wheel spindle nut.
Consequence: While driving, a tire and wheel separation could occur increasing the risk of a crash.
Actions: Dealers will inspect the tire and wheel assembly and if found without a spindle nut it will be repaired free of charge. The recall began on November 2, 2009. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-835-1403. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #09V420000 »
2009 Dodge Challenger TIRES:PRESSURE MONITORING AND REGULATING SYSTEMS NHTSA Campaign #08V642000
Summary: Chrysler is recalling 175 MY 2009 Dodge charger, Challenger, and Chrysler 300 vehicles. The tire pressure monitor (tpm) sensors may not transmit the actual tire pressure. This could result in the driver not being aware of low tire pressure.
Consequence: Operation of the vehicle with low tire pressure could result in tire damage and cause a crash without warning.
Actions: Dealers will replace the tpm sensors. The recall is expected to begin on February 9, 2009. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #08V642000 »
2009 Dodge Challenger POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION:PARK/NEUTRAL START SWITCH NHTSA Campaign #08V458000
Summary: Chrysler is recalling 6,636 MY 2008-2009 Dodge Challenger vehicles equipped with automatic transmissions and "keyless go" option. These vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard no. 114, "theft prevention." If the stop/start button is pressed and held and the engine turns off, the electronic key code is removed from the vehicle. Since this can occur in a transmission or gear selector position other than "park, " and the transmission or gear selector does not become locked in "park" as a direct result of key removal, it was determined that a noncompliance may exist.
Consequence: This standard specifies vehicle performance requirements intended to reduce the incidence of crashes resulting from theft and accidental rollaway of motor vehicles.
Actions: Dealers will reprogram the wireless ignition node module so the engine can only be turned off when the transmission and gear selector is in the "park" position. The recall began on September 15, 2008. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #08V458000 »
