Hello, I am assuming that your shift is hard to get out of park and maybe past reverse. In August of 2010, Dodge put out a campaign for this issue. A campaign is not a recall, but it is similar. It is when the manufacturer is making a repair of a known issue voluntarily when the car comes into the dealer for repair work or service. This campaign, K16, was to install a steel retaining clip in the shifter. If your car has not been to the dealer after August of 2010, you should give the dealer a call with your VIN number to see if your car is covered.
