Dodge Viper SRT Recall Is What Happens When Its Doors May Not Work

Not at all embarrassing.

When you buy a Dodge Viper SRT, you expect everything to work. Well, expectations and reality often don’t match up as proved by the recall Fiat Chrysler Automobiles just issued for 2013 and 2014 models over a faulty sealant. The sealant is located in the door handles and apparently doesn’t do enough to block out moisture. This leads to the fuse shorting out and the door opening at slow speeds. That’s a lot better than the last recall for airbags but still kind of scary.

The recall affects some 1,762 Vipers, with the lion’s share of those residing in the US and Canada. Owners are being contacted by mail (way to live in the future) and referred to Dodge dealerships for free maintenance to fix the issue.
