DETROIT (AP) — Fiat Chrysler is recalling more than a half-million Dodge Chargers worldwide because they can slip off of a jack when tires are being changed.

The recall covers Chargers from the 2011 to 2016 model years and includes almost 442,000 cars in the United States.

The company says the body beneath the doors can become deformed during jack use, making the cars unstable. Fiat Chrysler is doing the recall because an analysis of warranty claims showed that they could fall from jacks. The company says it knows of three minor injuries from the problem.

Fiat Chrysler will provide wheel chocks free of charge to keep the cars stable during jacking. Customers will be notified when they can get the chocks.
