Chrysler has issued a recall for approximately 22,000 vehicles due to a problem with hydraulic brake lines on certain 2010 models.
The recall affects the 2010 Ram 1500 light-duty pickup truck, Dodge Nitro, Jeep Liberty and Jeep Wrangler. These vehicles could have a bad connection from the brake master cylinder to the hydraulic control unit that could lead to a loss of brake fluid and reduced braking performance, increasing the possibility of a crash.
Chrysler says it's not aware of any complaints, accidents or injuries related to this problem.
The recall is expected to begin next month. Dealers will inspect and replace the brake tubes for free. Owners may contact Chrysler at 800-853-1403 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s hot line at 800-327-4236.
