It’s hard to imagine any good coming from the driver of a 707-horsepower vehicle not being able to see out the windshield. That accounts for the automaker recalling about 1,200 of its 2017 Dodge Challenger SRTs with the Hellcat V-8.
The problem is a possible oil leak. A hose to the engine oil cooler does not meet factory specifications, according to a report filed yesterday with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
That failure would cause such a rapid loss of engine oil that “the customer may experience impaired visibility due to oil spray on the windshield, engine seizure and/or a potential risk of fire due to engine oil contacting a hot surface,” the automaker said.
