Dodge Hornet Recall
if you have owned a vehicle in the last 10 years, then you have most likely received a recall through the mail at some point. The Dodge Hornet is no different when it comes to a recall. We have put together a list of the majority of the Dodge Hornet Recalls up to this date for you. Your recalls can affect the way a vehicle performs or handles. A recall could also be a safety concern. Either way you want to always address any open recalls. Here is a list of all the recalls we could find on a Hornet to date. For a general list of safety recalls, you can visit any Dodge Dealership near you.
The Dodge Hornet
The Dodge Hornet is an extra-small SUV that packs a particularly potent punch for a vehicle its size. Where other subcompact sport-utes might be lucky to exceed 150 horsepower, the Hornet makes a whopping 268 horsepower in base form. The Hornet is based on the same architecture that underpins the Alfa Romeo Tonale, and it inherits a similar plug-in hybrid drivetrain option pumping out 288 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque available in the new R/T model.
Four trim levels of Dodge Hornet are available: GT, GT Plus, R/T and R/T Plus. GT and GT Plus models are powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine making 268 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. R/T and R/T Plus models receive a turbocharged 1.3-liter four-cylinder plug-in hybrid setup good for 288 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. All models come standard with all-wheel drive.
The plug-in-hybrid R/T model comes with a 12.0-kWh battery pack which is rated for 33 miles of electric driving per charge. On our 75-mph highway fuel economy test route we managed to motor on for 31 miles before the Hornet’s gas engine kicked on to pick up the slack.
