The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that Chrysler will recall certain 2010 models of the Jeep Liberty, Jeep Wrangler, Dodge Nitro, and Dodge Ram (now known simply as the Ram). According to the official NHTSA bulletin, those vehicles were built with a defective part that could cause a loss of braking ability.

The fault lies in the end flare that sits between the master cylinder and the hydraulic control unit brake tube assembly. In certain 2010 models, that improperly formed part could allow brake fluid to drain out of the system, which, in turn, could lead to a loss of braking ability and potentially an accident. There are no production dates given in the bulletin and no indication as to how many vehicles are affected by this problem, so for the time being, we ought to assume that every 2010 model is at risk.

Although the NHTSA notice has already been issued, a full recall won't take place until August. At that time, dealers will install replacement brake tubes on affected models free of charge. If you have questions in the meantime, we encourage you to call Chrysler at 800-853-1403, or call the NHTSA at 888-327-4236 and reference Chrysler safety recall #K15.

  1. I have my '08 Ram but it works well. I have a regular maintenance with it. Hope this only applies for 2010 models. Might as well have its brakes checked with my dealer. Thanks for the info!
