The ratio to problems probably doesn't exceed the recall rate. Plus, it is not a safety issue. No one can get hurt from this thing breaking.

As far as the CEL light coming on, probably has something to do with the car being shut off without it being in part. Our cars computers are connected to EVERYTHING and is finally seeing that there is a problem with the tranny not doing what it is supposed to do. Once the piece is fixed, the CEL light will be reset and you will be fine.

I just had this happen to my 06 R/T at the beginning of June. My warranty was out but i had purchased an extended warranty, but they wouldnt cover it either saying it wasnt a major repair. Anyways i tried the manual override and it still wasnt movin anywhere. I had it towed to the dealership and they had to replace the whole transmission shifter assembly which cost me parts and labor or $490. It should have been covered by the manufacturer or the warranty but neither did. Just gotta hold in the anger and pay for it. I tried every way i could think possible to get it covered but noone would...

We have a 2007 Charger and refused to waste tons of money at the "stealership". Our "pink thingy" broke earlier today on the way to the doctor's and after doing some research, I found the following places that will save you a bundle if you want to replace the part with the aluminum version rather than another flimsy plastic piece or rigging it up... the cheapest was rock auto for only $18.82!! its made by dorman (part #924706) and here is thier link http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/x,ca...parttype,16605 that is for 2007 but you can do a search for your model and year. the part on their site is called the shifter interlock latch. the only other place was from Billet Tech and they call it the park lock out mechanism $49.99 http://www.custombilletstore.com/cat...show=10&page=2 hope this helps!!

On my 07 Charger SRT8, I can hear/feel the interlock releasing, the shifter moves to the right, but then won't move down toward reverse. I've tried pushing the pink override, but that doesn't do anything. Does this sound like the same issue with the interlock latch?

Same thing happened to my '06 Charger today. Had it towed to the dealership and it's having the shifting assembly replaced as we speak.
