Chrysler is recalling 18,690 model year 2012-2013 Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles manufactured from October 11, 2011 through October 1, 2012.
Under certain braking events, the Ready Alert Braking System (RAB) on the affected vehicles may result in the driver experiencing a hard brake pedal feel.
If the driver experiences a hard brake pedal, the driver may not push the pedal as intended, lengthening the distance needed to stop the vehicle and increasing the risk of a crash.
The owners of the recalled Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles will be notified by Chrysler, and dealers will update the ABS module software, free of charge.
