DETROIT — Chrysler Group Tuesday ordered its dealers to stop selling its redesigned 2004 Dodge Durango sport-utility vehicle because of a defect that could cause the vehicle to crash.

Separately, the automaker recalled 2.7 million 1993-1999 passenger cars because of a problem with a floor-mounted shifter.

Chrysler must replace the throttle control cable in the Durango because of a water leak that can freeze the cable in cold temperatures, leaving the throttle open and possibly causing a "crash without warning," according to a directive sent to dealers. The fix must be made to 21,000 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.

It's not unusual for an automaker to halt sale of a vehicle when a safety-related defect is discovered.
