Chrysler Group is recalling 741 2013 Dodge Durangos to replace a seating capacity label.

The recalled vehicles are equipped with optional captain’s chairs and have a seating capacity of six. A routine quality audit conducted by Chrysler Group discovered a computer error had generated labels indicating the vehicles can accommodate seven occupants.

Chrysler Group is unaware of any related complaints, accidents or injuries.

Regulations require that all vehicles be equipped with labels defining seating capacity and other attributes.

The recall population comprises 734 vehicles in the U.S. and seven in Canada.

Bill Cawthon grew up in the auto industry in the 1950s. His Dad worked for Chrysler and Bill spent a number of Saturdays down on the plant floor at Dodge Main in Hamtramck. Bill is also the U.S. market correspondent for just-auto.com, a British auto industry publication, and a member of the Texas Auto Writers Association, which has named the Jeep Grand Cherokee the “SUV of Texas” several times and named the Ram 1500 as the “Truck of Texas” two years running.

Bill has owned five Plymouths (including the only 1962 “Texan”), one Dodge and one Chrysler and is still trying to figure out how to justify a Wrangler. He also has owned at least one of every 1:87 scale model of a Chrysler product. You can reach him directly at (206) 888-7324 or by using the form.
