New Safety Recall – S08050616 Power Steering Return Hoses

May 6, 2016

FCA US LLC ("FCA US") announced a safety recall on certain 2009 through 2016 model year (JC) Dodge Journey vehicles equipped with an engine block heater (sales code NHK).
Some of the above vehicles have been built with power steering return hoses that could rupture on a cold engine start up after the vehicle is exposed to extreme cold ambient temperatures for an extended period of time.
A loss of power steering assist increases the steering effort required to steer the vehicle. The increased steering effort could cause a crash without warning.
FCA US will conduct a voluntary safety recall to replace the power steering return hoses, steel tubes and power steering oil cooler.
