Chrysler to recall 24,177 vehicles on brake issue

Chrysler Group LLC will recall 24,177 vehicles due to a potential defect in a brake system that could result in sudden brake failure, the automaker said in a filing with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The recall applies to 2010 model-year Chrysler Sebring, Dodge Avenger and Nitro, and Jeep Liberty, Commander and Grand Cherokee SUVs, as well as 2009-2010 model year Dodge Ram trucks.

In some of the vehicles, the clip retention tab on the brake pedal pin was not improperly formed, or not installed, during the manufacturing process, Chrysler said.

That could result in brake failure without warning and could cause a crash, the company said. Chrysler said it was unaware of any accidents or injuries related to the issue.

Chrysler said the safety recall is expected to begin during the month of January.

I have a '06 Jeep Grand Cherokee and it's been in the shop a number of times. All of the small things on it are going out. The older Chrysler cars were better. I agree with "BUY AMERICAN" but Chevy and even ford have a much better quality automobile

Chrysler has always been junk.

Chrysler car,s are very good .Ive had ,and still have Chrysler car,s. My 2005 Jeep has near 80,000 miles on the meter.with NO repairs . Chrysler is not loved by it,s compition.Thats why you hear so many bad things about these cars. Also if you like it when Americans have jobs. I say BUY AMERICAN!
