(NBC News) -- The Chrysler group has ordered dealers to stop selling its 2004 Dodge Durango SUV because of a defect.
Chrysler is replacing the throttle control cable in the Durango because of a water leak.
According to a company order sent to dealers, that leak can cause the cable to freeze the throttle open in cold conditions possibly causing the vehicle to "Crash without warning."
The automaker must fix 21-thousand vehicles with 3.7 liter V-6 And 4.7 liter V-8 engines that either were delivered to customers or are sitting on dealer lots.
Experts say it's not unusual for an automaker to halt the sale of a vehicle When a safety-related defect is discovered.
