Chrysler Group is recalling approximately 49,400 Dodge Charger full-size sedans to inspect them over potential issues with various headlamp components.
The affected vehicles were sold for the 2011 and 2012 model years and are equipped with halogen headlamps. In 2012, the manufacturer issued a similar recall for nearly 10,000 police-spec Dodge Chargers that were fitted with jumper harnesses and other headlight assemblies that overheated.

The Chargers in question will have their headlamp assemblies inspected and replaced, if necessary, at no cost to the owners. Dodge says there are no accidents or injuries related to this matter.

About 43,450 of the affected Chargers were sold in the United States, while 2,850 units were delivered in Canada. 375 made their way to Mexico and 2,700 are with costumers that live outside of North America.

Chrysler Group has yet to announce a timetable for the recall, but said it will contact customers to advise them when to schedule service. Concerned drivers can contact the automaker at 1-800-853-1403.

This is Chrysler's third recall notice for the year. Earlier this month it was announced that the new 2014 Ram ProMaster van is being investigated over stuck accelerator pedals and brake hoses. Additionally, about 25,000 Jeep Grand Cherokees and Dodge Durangos from 2012 and 2013 are being called back for a software update that will improve pedal feel during aggressive brake maneuvers.
