Corrosion may make the vehicles' brakes harder to use. Crimp joints in the brake boosters can corrode if they're exposed to water. If the water freezes, the boosters won't aid braking as they usually do. There has been one accident but no injuries associated with the recall.
The recall includes nearly 870,000 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango SUVs from the 2011 through 2014 model years.
Car dealerships nationwide.
What To Do:
The company will inspect the brake boosters on affected vehicles and replace the booster if they show signs of corrosion. All vehicles in the recall will also be equipped with a shield to block water from the booster. For more information, call Chrysler at (800) 853-1403.
