Re: 2011-2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee & Dodge Durango RECALL - about 800,000 SUVs

I've experienced a firm brake pedal on I think three separate occasions. Two out of the three times it was after coming out of a local grocery store this past winter. After about a 10 second drive through the parking lot which included one stop sign, there's an incline you have to stop at to wait for the stop light. Twice, while my foot was on the brake at the light, I felt the pedal become very firm.

Whether or not it was related to this issue or just because the booster pressure was low because I had just started the car up, I don't know.

I wonder if the shield they're adding is as good as the special coating that's being used on current production boosters?

Not sure if the recall includes ALL that were manufactured during those dates or not as it says "Chrysler Group LLC (Chrysler) is recalling CERTAIN model year 2011-2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango vehicles manufactured from January 5, 2010, through September 8, 2013."

That doesn't necessarily mean ALL ... but given the large number, sure looks pretty much like MOST.

RoF, it's the big, black circular round thing under the brake fluid reservoir. The brake pedal attaches to it directly. The brake pedal, BTW, is arrived at least to us, as an assembly and is attached to the firewall with 5 nuts. Yes I used to do that on the line.

If you look at it, you can see how this happens. Most brake boosters are made this way though I think. Why it's a problem with the Jeep and Durango, I dunno...

BTW: Nothing is in the way when it is installed so if there's an issue, it was certainly caused by freezing water, not from an assembly conflict, etc.

Check the plate on the drivers door jamb - look for the MDH on the right hand side. This will give you month/day/hour of assembly.

Re: 2011-2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee & Dodge Durango RECALL - about 800,000 SUVs

This could explain something I've been noticing the last 2-3 weeks. When starting the vehicle lately the brake pedal is EXTREMELY firm- almost like the vacuum in the booster has leaked out. It's not noticeable when the vehicle hasn't been sitting long- only for a few hours. I've noticed no issues while the engine is running; I'm guessing any vacuum leak is overcome easily by the vacuum produced while running.

I had made an appointment to have it looked at already, guess I'll print out the recall info and bring that in.

Thanks. I was just wondering if it was on the build sheet as amr40509 suggested.
