Chrysler recalls over 850,000 vehicles

By ,

Chrysler will recall 867,795 Dodge Durangos and Jeep Grand Cherokees from the 2011-2014 model years ― including 42,380 in Canada ― because the small crimp joints on their brake boosters may exhibit corrosion when exposed to water.

Should water enter the boosters through corroded joints, brake function may be compromised if the water freezes.

Chrysler dealers will therefore install a shield to protect the brake boosters from corrosion caused by undue water exposure.
