A Dodge Charger windshield recall by automaker Stellantis affects some 21,000 vehicles including Dodge Chargers and Chrysler 300s sedans.
There is a major safety risk to drivers with these vehicles. The windshield could detach from the affected vehicles if there is a collision. The urethane sealing used for the windshield was not performing as designed.
Back in October 2020, a non-conforming, substandard additive was added to the clear coat on the windshields. Also, this happened at the Brampton Assembly Plant in Ontario, Canada. Specifically, on Dec. 4th, the batch was used to install windshields on vehicles at the facility. However, these vehicles fail to comply with FMVSS 49. That’s why the company issued a recall.
The automaker will strip off the additive and clear coat and replace it with a primer for the urethane. This will allow the glass to bond properly to the automobile.
Additionally, Stellantis intends to notify owners on Aug. 27th.
Meanwhile, owners of the affected vehicles with questions should contact the automaker at 800-853-1403 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236.
