Safety Recall R63 / NHTSA 15V-800 Brake Booster Contamination

May 5, 2016

2013 - 2014 (PF) Dodge Dart
NOTE: This recall applies only to the above vehicles equipped with a 2.0L or a 2.4L Tigershark engine (sales code ECK or ED6) built through January 23, 2014 (MDH 012323).

The brake booster on about 105,400 of the above vehicles may experience engine oil migration from the vacuum pump, through the vacuum supply tube, and into the brake booster. Prolonged brake booster diaphragm exposure to engine oil could cause the diaphragm to fail. This could lead to a loss of brake booster assist and/or an air leaking sound.

A loss of brake booster assist could require the driver to apply additional brake pedal force to stop the vehicle. The lack of brake booster assist could change the braking characteristics of the vehicle and cause a crash without warning.

For more information, call: (877) 211-1992.
