Chrysler Recall: Faulty Brakes Could Cause a Crash

We thought that 2009 was the year of vehicle recalls, if you thought that 2010 was going to be different, then think again. Chrysler has now issued a recall due to faulty brakes, which could cause sudden brake failure. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there are 24,177 vehicles affected by this latest recall.

If the problem is not resolved then this could cause a crash, thankfully there have been no reports of this happing so far. The Chrysler Recall applies to a number of 2009 and 2010 cars and trucks, these include, the 2009-2010 Dodge Ram trucks and 2010 Chrysler Sebring, Jeep Liberty, Dodge Avenger and Nitro and finally Commander and Grand Cherokee SUVs.

There are a number of factors why the brakes could fail; one is due to a poorly formed or installed clip retention tab, which is connected to the brake pedal pin. However, in some cases the clip retention tab has not even been fitted.

Either way the result would be the same; the brakes on the affected vehicle could fail causing the car to crash. The U.S. carmaker has not had any reports of this happening as factory workers discovered the problem.

The recall is to begin this month, for more details visit Reuters.
