Chrysler to fix stalling problem in midsize cars

[November 10, 2012]  (AP) -- Chrysler is telling owners of more than 46,000 midsize cars to take them to dealers to fix a problem that can make the engines stall.

Owners of Chrysler 200s and Dodge Avengers from the 2011 model year are getting notices from the company. The cars have 3.6-Liter V-6 engines.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration began investigating in June after getting complaints from drivers.

The safety agency and Chrysler got 161 complaints about stalling, mostly at low speeds.

Investigators traced the cause to a computer that runs the pollution controls. Chrysler will reprogram the computer.

The company's actions are similar to a recall but are called a customer satisfaction campaign. The safety agency says the condition is a low risk to safety and is properly addressed by Chrysler's campaign.
