A bad labeling job is at the root of Dodge recalling 734 units of the its 2013 Durango. The SUVs in question, built from April 27 to September 14 of this year, could have been affixed with labels that overstate the seating capacity. That contravenes federal regulations, and could lead to an accident due to owners putting too many people in the vehicle.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says a the recall should begin in February, 2013. Dodge will “provide replacement labels” to owners who can apply them on their own or have their dealers apply the correct labels free of charge. There’s more information in the NHTSA bulletin below.

2011 Dodge Durango

Chrysler has barely begun production of the 2013 Dodge Durango, but it’s already encountered problems that have led to a recall. An incorrect airbag module was installed in roughly 1,500 of the early-production, seven-passenger Durango models. According to Chrysler, these vehicles received mislabeled modules intended for the five-passenger version. In a crash, this could lead to the side-curtain airbag not deploying for the third row.

Chrysler says most of the vehicles that were incorrectly assembled have yet to be sold, but those that have will be repaired by dealers starting in September.

Scroll down to read Chrysler’s statement on the situation, as well as the full recall report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

2012 Dodge Durango Special Service models - police and fire vehicles

The Dodge Charger has already done a fine job ingratiating itself with our nation’s police forces, and with Ford’s Crown Victoria finally off the beat, Chrysler is understandably keen to gain a bigger share of the law enforcement pie. Enter the 2012 Durango Special Service.

Available in both rear- and all-wheel drive and Pentastar V6 or Hemi V8 flavors, this Durango variant has been uprated for the sort of duty cycles common among police and fire crews. Available modifications include a heavy-duty brake setup, larger battery, 220-amp alternator, as well as an engine cooler and upsized water pump. Properly equipped, Chrysler says the Durango SS can tow a class-leading 7,400 pounds, and it offers a bladder-perforating 550-mile range.

Dodge has improved interior lighting to make sure that officers don’t have to squint while writing you that speeding ticket, and they’ve also gone to the trouble of brooming the third row of seats for increased capacity (K9 duty, anyone?). Thoughtfully, they’ve left the second-row HVAC controls so that perps can be stored at proper temperatures.

Want to know more? Check out our high-res image gallery and then shuffle past the jump to see the official press release.
