Chrysler Jeep recall
Chrysler recalled more than 800,000 vehicles worldwide last week due to a brake defect. Recalled vehicles were 2011 to 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee’s and Dodge Durango’s. Dealers, including us, will inspect and replace the appropriate parts that are affected.
Vehicles that were made after September 2013 received a new part that fixes the brake problem in other models. Chrysler will begin notifying affected owners of the newest Chrysler Jeep recall next month.
The recall began with pedal pressure complaints and it was found that some brake parts were being exposed to water, causing corrosion.
In addition to the most recent recall, the go-ahead was given to fix the more 1.56 million Jeeps that were recalled due to a rear-mounted gas tank, which poses a fire hazard in the case of a crash.
Chrysler agreed to install trailer hitches on defective Jeeps (Grand Cherokee’s from 1993 to 1998, and Liberty’s from 2002 to 2007), as to give a little cushion if the vehicle is rear-ended.
Jeep owners who are affected were sent letters late last year, and Chrysler is expected to announce when dealers can begin installing the trailer hitches soon.
