Chrysler Recalls Vehicles for Improper Brake Pedal Operation

Chrysler Group LLC has recalled over 18,690 model year 2012-2013 Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles manufactured October 1, 2011 through October 1, 2012

According to Chrysler Group LLC, under certain breaking events, the Ready Alert Braking System (RAB) may result in the driver experiencing a hard brake pedal feel.  Chrysler admits that this may cause the driver not to push the brake pedal as intended, lengthening the distance needed to stop and increasing the risk of a crash.

According to the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration ("NHTSA"), Chrysler Group LLC will notify vehicle owners directly, and its authorized dealers will update the ABS module software free of charge.  Owners may also contact Chrysler Group LLC direct at 1-800-853-1403.  

Do you have a 2012-2013 Dodge Durango or Jeep Grand Cherokee that experienced a brake problem, but is still not fixed?  If the vehicle was purchased or repaired in Ohio or Kentucky, then you can call Burdge Law Office on our Toll Free Hotline, 1.888.331.6422, to see if we can help you out of your "lemon" vehicle.
