Nearly 12,000 Dodge Darts recalled in Canada

By ,

Chrysler is recalling 11,996 Dodge Dart compact cars from the 2013-2014 model years in Canada to address a braking issue. 

On certain vehicles, engine oil may migrate from the vacuum pump into the brake booster. Prolonged brake booster diaphragm exposure to engine oil could cause the diaphragm to fail, leading to a loss of brake booster assist. This may result in increased brake pedal effort, which could increase stopping distances.

Dodge dealers will inspect the brake booster grommet for the presence of oil. If no oil is found, the vacuum tube assembly will be replaced. If oil is found, the vacuum pump, vacuum tube assembly, brake booster, and master cylinder will be replaced.
