Chrysler Issues Recall Affecting More Than 646,000 Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs
The affected vehicles had brake booster shields installed under a previous recall
A new vehicle recall from Chrysler aims to ensure that the repairs made to remedy a past recall were performed properly.
What's the issue?
The automaker is recalling more than 646,000 model year 2011-2014 Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles. The affected vehicles had brake booster shields installed under a previous recall campaign to prevent water from entering the brake booster and limiting braking ability.
The purpose of this new recall is to verify that the brake booster shield was installed correctly.
If the brake booster was not properly installed, the vehicle's braking ability may be reduced, increasing the risk of a crash.
What happens next?
Chrysler will notify owners of the recalled Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles beginning in mid-November 2017. Dealers will then inspect the brake booster shield, correcting the installation as necessary, free of charge.
Vehicle owners with additional questions about this recall can contact Chrysler customer service at (800) 853-1403.
Chrysler's reference number for this recall is T59.
