Fiat Chrysler recalls more than 320,000 cars in North America because a transmission problem could cause them to roll away unexpectedly.
The recall covers Dodge Dart compact cars from 2013 to 2016 with six-speed automatic gearboxes, the Italian-American automaker said in a report to the US National Highway Traffic Administration.
The company said that a bushing might fail, causing the shifter cable to come loose from the transfer. This means that when a driver switches to park or other equipment, the equipment cannot be changed and the car can roll away.
Fiat Chrysler said it didn't know about any related crashes or injuries, but it has thousands of reports of related car repairs. It is recommended that the owners turn off the engine and set the parking brake before leaving the vehicles.
The recall includes about 298,000 US vehicles, 20,1
Dealers Replace the Cable Sleeve, which can be decomposed after exposure to heat and humidity, at no cost to owners. The recall is expected to start on 31 May.
Fiat Chrysler stopped producing Dart in 2016.
