Chrysler Recalls 24,000 Vehicles on Brake Issue

American manufacturer Chrysler, together with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), announced the recall of no less than 24,177 of the carmaker's Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep vehicles.

The recall, as posted on the NHTSA website, states "Chrysler is recalling model year 2010 Chrysler Sebring, Dodge Avenger and Nitro, Jeep Liberty, Commander and Grand Cherokee and model year 2009-2010 Dodge Ram truck. These vehicles may have been built with an improperly formed or missing brake booster input rod retaining clip."

The consequence of this fault could be severe, as it could result in a brake failure and eventually a crash. According to the carmaker, the brake booster input rod retaining clip will be replaced with a proper one. As usual in such cases, any repairs made will be free of charge. The recall is expected to begin by the end of January 2010.

This is the third major recall for Chrysler in the last half of year. Back in November, the carmaker issued a recall notice concerning some Jeep Wrangler models, due to a problem with the automatic transmission. The number of 2007-2008 Jeep Wrangler vehicles affected is 161,450, all of which may catch fire due to the lack of transmission fluid temperature warning system.

Prior to this, Chrysler recalled 84,000 2007 Dodge Caliber vehicles due to the windshield wiper, as its excessive use may make it inoperable. Both recalls are still underway.
