Chrysler Recalls 119,000 Charger And 300 Models!

As with most things in life, it's the little things that will get you. This not only applies to people, but to cars too. The new Chrysler 300 and Dodge Charger have made a giant splash in the world of automotive excitement, but this week Chrysler had to quell some of that enthusiasm when it issued a recall of 119,072 Chargers and 300s made as 2011 and 2012 models due to a problem with overheating power distribution centers which could cause the ABS/ESC systems to malfunction and become inoperable. Having a non-functioning ABS/ESC system could increase the likelihood of a crash -- which is a big deal, but started off with a very little thing.
