News Summary: Chrysler recalls Challengers

The Associated Press

THE RECALL: Chrysler is recalling about 2,500 Dodge Challenger muscle cars in the U.S. that are equipped with V-6 engines. It's also telling owners not to drive them until they are repaired.

THE PROBLEM: A short in a wiring circuit can overheat and cause fires. There have been six fires so far and a seventh incident is under investigation. No one has been hurt, Chrysler said. The company also says people shouldn't park the cars in or near a structure.

THE SOLUTION: Chrysler will take the cars to dealerships to replace defective parts. The company wouldn't say exactly what is causing the short circuit.
