The issue was discovered by the American company while testing a Dart that had been parked for eight hours in a climate chamber at 20 degrees Fahrenheit. The problem, which was also reported by some customers, can cause loss of power, increasing the risk of crash and injury, the automaker announced.

The affected vehicles will have their powertrain control modules recalibrated by dealers free of charge. 12,900 of the 14,800 affected units are in the United States, while 1,900 are located in Canada and five in Mexico. The rest of the Darts were sold outside of North America.

For more information, 1.4-liter-powered 2013 Dodge Dart owners can contact the company at 1-800-853-1403.
