Chrysler Recall Issued for 867,795 SUVs

Chrysler will recall approximately 867,795 SUVs in order to install a brake booster shield for the protection of brake-pedals against undue water exposure corrosion.

The Chrysler Group has just issued a recall statement for a massive number of vehicles. Chrysler is going to recall an estimated 867,795 SUVs. The 644,354 affected customers in turn belong to the United States. 42,380 are from Canada, 21,376 have their provenance in Mexico and 159,685 customers come from outside the NAFTA region.

The reason behind this massive recall is to install a brand new brake booster shield. Chrysler says that this new shield will protect the vehicle's brake boosters from corrosion caused by undue water exposure. Actually, Chrysler Group has received negative customer feedback about the vehicle's brakes.

Chrysler customers reported that they experienced excessive brake-pedal firmness. Hence, the giant car manufacturer decided to investigate the whole issue. As a result of this investigation, the Chrysler Group found brake boosters installed in certain vehicles with small crimp joints.

Due to these small crimp joints, corrosion occurs in brake booster when exposed to water. And the water can enter in the brake boosters through corroded joints. If the water freezes, brake function may be compromised. This situation was never noticed before by the company.

According to Chrysler, "In the absence of water ingestion in sub-freezing conditions, a booster that exhibits corrosion will deliver brake function in compliance with federal safety standards. (The vehicles are equipped with a hydraulic boost compensation system that aids performance, even when booster vacuum levels are low.) However, customers may experience excessive brake-pedal firmness."

And an accident has also come to the knowledge of the Chrysler Group that occurred due to the brake-pedal firmness issue. However, no injuries were reported. That is why Chrysler is recalling a massive number of its vehicles.

The company will closely inspect the brake boosters on certain 2011-2014 models of Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango SUVs. And if it will find that the capability of brake boosters in these SUVs has been reduced, Chrysler will replace it.

However, Chrysler will install the new brake booster shield on all the boosters of the various SUVs. This new shield consists of a special coating designed to resist corrosion and it will insulate the crimp joints of brake boosters from water. And the company will charge no extra fees for installing this protective shield. The Chrysler Group will bear all the installation costs down to the last cent. And company will also contact all the affected customers with instructions to schedule services with Chrysler Group dealers.
