Fiat Chrysler recalls almost 650000 SUVs over brake issue”

- Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is recalling almost 650,000 SUVs in the United States for a brake issue. The shields are created to protect the boosters from water intrusion.

The automaker says that a booster problem telltale could include activation of the vehicle's anti-lock brakes and/or illumination of a warning lamp.

The move follows a single potentially related accident, according to reports.

Fiat Chrysler recalls almost 650000 SUVs over brake issue

"A booster compromised by water will still deliver brake function in compliance with USA federal safety standards", FCA reports in the statement.

The action affects Jeep Grand Cherokees and Dodge Durangos from model years 2011-14 with about 646,000 of those vehicles in the U.S. The remainder are in Canada and Mexico. A review of warranty data led to the discovery of some improperly installed booster shields.

Affected customers are scheduled to be notified that service for this latest campaign will be available in early November. Apparently, shields created to protect the booster may may have been incorrectly installed during a fix from a previous campaign in 2014. Customers with questions or concerns may call the FCA US Recall Information Center at (800)-853-1403. Those found to have boosters with compromised function and/or improperly installed shields, will be serviced accordingly, free of charge, FCA said.
