Vehicles Impacted: About 644,354 model-year 2011-2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango SUVs manufactured from Jan. 5, 2010, via Sept. 8, 2013.
The Dilemma: A brake booster’;s center shell might corrode and allow water to get within, which could freeze and limit the braking potential of the vehicle, escalating the risk of a crash.
The Correct: Chrysler will notify owners starting in May, and dealers will include a water diverter shield to the booster following the booster has been examined to confirm that it can hold an acceptable quantity of vacuum stress. If the booster inspection confirms an unacceptable reduction of vacuum stress, the booster will be replaced for free of charge.
