Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ spokesperson announced a recall service for approximately 15,000 jeeps in order to fix left front brake caliper.
Fiat Chrysler is recalling 2015-2016 models of the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango. Automobiles’ officials said that the company is going to recall 14,768 models of Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango because of the front brake issue.
2015 and 2016 models of the Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango which were manufactured between December 9, 2015, and January 14, 2016, are the particular vehicles being recalled.
According to the company’s spokesperson, in some vehicles, the left front brake caliper has been made from the wrong type of iron that could crack anytime.
