img1856906364 1512769101773 jpg

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 154,000 model-year 2018-19 Dodge Grand Caravan minivans and Jeep Compass SUVs; model-year 2018 Dodge Journey SUVs; and model-year 2019 Jeep Cherokee SUVs

The Problem: The rear brake caliper pistons on these vehicles may have an insufficient coating that can cause gas pockets to form, potentially reducing rear brake performance and increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Dealers will bleed the vehicle’s brake system for free.

What Owners Should Do: Dodge and Jeep parent company Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will begin notifying owners Sept. 28. Owners can call the automaker at 800-853-1403, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
