2009 Dodge Challenger
Said the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), pressing and holding the Challenger automatic's stop/start button will turn the vehicle's engine off regardless of gear selector lever position. Turn the engine off, forget to put it in park, release the brake, exit the car, and you might just watch in astonishment as your spunky Challenger traipses down the hill without you.
So that the engine may be shut off only after the transmission has been placed in Park, Edmunds states that "Chrysler dealers will reprogram the wireless ignition node module." For more information about the recall that is slated to begin this week, Challenger owners may dial 1-800-853-1403.--Colin Mathews
