Chrysler is recalling certain model year 2013 Chrysler 200 and Dodge
Avenger vehicles manufactured from October 30, 2012, through November
2, 2012. These vehicles may have a gas tank that has a broken control
valve in the fuel tank assembly.
A broken control valve in the fuel tank assembly may lead to an engine
stall or fuel leakage. An engine stall while driving may contribute to
a vehicle crash. Fuel leakage, in the presence of an ignition source,
may result in a fire.

assembly and replace any affected control valves, free of charge. The
recall is expected to begin during March 2013. Owners may contact
Chrysler at 1-800-247-9753.
