Chrysler recalls Jeep Wrangler & Compass

Chrysler, fresh out of bankruptcy and now a Fiat division, is recalling the Jeep Wrangler and the Jeep Compass for two different problems, both rather series in nature.

Chrysler’s first recall is for 34,631 Dodge Caliber and 90 Jeep Compass vehicles from the 2007 model year in order to address a potential issue with sticking gas pedals. The pedals were made by the same supplier as the one for Toyota. No accidents have been reported.

The Wrangler recall is for 288,968 between 2006 and 2010 model years due to front fender liners that could make contact with the right front and left rear brake tubes. The friction caused by the fender liners could “cause wear of the tubes causing a brake fluid leak.” The leaking fluid could cause partial loss of service brakes at the affected wheel, increasing the risk of a crash.

Dealers will offer free repairs to all affected.
