Recall roundup: Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee image

Chrysler has recently announced a recall for the Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs because of some problems with their braking systems.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Dodge Durango are the subjects to a recall which was recently announced by Chrysler. According to the North American based automaker, the SUVs have received some complaints about brake feel under hard braking.

“A supplier raised with the Company a concern about the performance of a component that accommodates Ready Alert Braking, a Chrysler Group safety system that primes brakes for optimal response when making a sudden stop. Brake function was neither lost nor out of compliance with regulation, but pedal feel was not consistent with customer expectations”, said the carmaker in its official press release.

The affected Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango vehicles are from the 2012 – 2013 model years and they include 18,700 units in the United States, 825 in Canada, 530 in Mexico and 5,200 units in other markets, outside the NAFTA region. The Chrysler Group will be notifying owners of these SUVs and repairs will be made free of charge. The company is not aware of any injuries or accidents related to this problem. For any extra details, owners can contact the car manufacturer at 1-800-853-1403.
