2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Recall
Apr 16, 2014Chrysler has announced that they are recalling certain model year 2011 through 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles manufactured from January 5, 2010 through September 8, 2013. They stated that the subject vehicles have a brake booster with a center shell that may corrode and allow water to get inside. The water inside could freeze and limit the braking ability of the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash. Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will add a water diverter shield to the booster after the booster has been tested to confirm it can hold an acceptable amount of vacuum pressure. If the booster inspection confirms an unnacaeptable loss of vacuum pressure, the booster will be replaced. Repairs will be made free of charge. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403.
