Autos Affected: About 18,700 model-12 months 2012-13 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango SUVs
The Difficulty: Chrysler received complaints about the efficiency of a component that accommodates Ready Alert Braking, a security system that primes the brakes for optimal response when producing a sudden stop. An investigation located brake-fluid movement was becoming overly limited. “Brake function was neither lost nor out of compliance with regulation, but pedal feel was not constant with client expectations,” the automaker explained in a statement, noting that no injuries or crashes have been reported.
The Resolve: Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will update software program to optimize brake-fluid flow and restore acceptable brake-pedal come to feel. The automaker has not specified a timeline for the recall notification.
What Owners Need to Do: Owners can call Chrysler at 800-853-1403 or the Nationwide Highway Traffic Security Administration’;s car-security hotline at 888-327-4236, or go to www.safercar.gov, for much more information.
