Chrysler recalls SUVs in the hope of avoiding car accidents

Many of our Maryland readers, just the same as those in other parts of the country, are familiar with the Chrysler brand. In fact, some of these people drive one of these cars on a daily basis.

Recently, Chrysler decided to recall more than 850,000 SUVs because they are worried about a potential problem with the brakes. The recall covers two vehicles, the 2011 to 2014 Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee models. Of these vehicles, approximately 644,000 are located in the United States.

Chrysler first became aware of the issue last year, however, it was found that the vehicles would still meet federal safety guidelines. But once the cold weather came around, many owners contacted the agency due to questions about their car's braking performance. This led to Chrysler contacting the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to initiate the recall.

According to the company, there is a corrosion problem with the brake booster. In turn, this allows water to enter the booster and freeze. If this does happen, drivers may be forced to push harder on the brake to stop the vehicle. That being said, Chrysler notes that this would not lead to a loss of braking.

Even though it appears that Chrysler did not have to make this recall, because the cars would still meet safety regulations, it took the lead to ensure that no car accidents happen as a result. This was the responsible thing to do, as it gives drivers of these vehicles the chance to have their SUV repaired while also lending peace of mind.
