Chrysler recalling 644k more Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs over brakes

http://www.autoblog.com/2014/04/02/c...akes-official/

Early last month, we reported on Chrysler issuing a preemptive, proactive recall for about 25,000 units of the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango. The issue revolved around a brake system that wasn't causing any actual problems, but delivered an unsatisfactory brake feel, so Auburn Hills called in a good 25,000 of SUVs around the world, including 18,700 in the United States.

Now Chrysler, having apparently determined that the brake problem on its sport utes is actually much bigger than it initially realized, has drastically broadened the scope of the recall. As a result, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has issued a recall for precisely 655,354 examples of the Grand Cherokee and Durango, covering the 2011 through 2014 model years. In addition, Chrysler is recalling 42,380 units in Canada, 21,376 in Mexico and 159,685 overseas.

No mention of RAMs being affected.

Only 1 accident, and no injuries.

Good to see that they're being proactive and not waiting until several of their customers die, covering it up, and then leaving it for the next CEO a decade later to issue a recall.
