FCA Recalls 15K SUVs Over Cracking Brakes

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is recalling about 15,000 SUVs over an issue with one of the front brake calipers. 

The vehicles in question are the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango from the 2015 and 2016 model years, built between December 9, 2015 and January 14, 2016. In those vehicles affected, the front driver-side brake caliper may crack as it was made from incorrect material.

A cracked brake caliper can cause the brakes to malfunction, causing the vehicle’s stopping distance to increase.

No accidents or injuries have been reported as a result of this issue. Dealers will inspect the brake caliper and replace it depending on the casting date.
