Chrysler recalls Jeep & Dodge models for brakes

The Office of Defects Investigation of the NHTSA has announced the recall of some 24,177 late-model Chrysler Group vehicles over potentially faulty brakes. The problem effects the 2010 Chrysler Sebring, Jeep Commander, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Jeep Liberty, Dodge Avenger, Dodge Nitro, and the 2009-2010 Dodge Ram.

The problem in question involves a retaining clip for the brake booster input rod – part of the brake hydraulics, which could be either be deformed or missing entirely. In such cases, the brakes could fail entirely and cause a crash.

If you own one of these 24,000 vehicles, the government agency advises that you contact your local Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep dealer for servicing.
