Chrysler Recalls Jeep Commanders and Dodge Nitros for Brake Problem

Comments Off

Chrysler announced an automobile recall of about 300,000 trucks due to a delay in braking when drivers step on the brake pedal.

Chrysler Dealers will be reprogramming the control module on the antilock brake systems of 2007 Jeep Wranglers and Dodge Nitros and 2006-2007 Jeep Grand Cherokees and Commanders free of charge.

The company has received one report of a crash, with no reported injuries.

The brake delay commonly happens when the vehicle goes up hill or prepares for a turn, according to a company spokesman.

While the occurrence is rare, they have received reports of drivers experiencing problems when they take their foot from the accelerator.
