May 5, 2016

FCA has decided that a defect, which relates to motor vehicle safety, exists in certain 2015 and 2016 model year Dodge Durango and JeepĀ® Grand Cherokee vehicles.

The problem is...
The left front brake caliper housing on your vehicle may have been cast from an incorrect material. Under extreme brake application, the left front brake caliper housing may rupture. A ruptured left front disc brake caliper housing could increase the vehicle's stopping distance and cause a crash.
