April 5, 2016 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -


FCA US LLC is recalling an estimated 14,769 SUVs in the U.S. to inspect and replace, as necessary, left-front brake calipers from a shipment not manufactured to the Company’s specifications.

FCA US launched an investigation after a supplier advised the Company that its normal manufacturing process was not followed during the production of a small number of brake calipers. It was determined the calipers may not function as intended in an extreme braking event.

Eight such calipers may have been installed on vehicles. The scope of this campaign is designed to account for these components.

The Company is unaware of any related injuries, accidents or complaints.

Affected are certain 2015-2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango SUVs. An additional 396 vehicles are being recalled in Canada, along with 287 in markets outside the NAFTA region.

Customers will be advised when they may schedule service, which will entail an inspection and possible brake-caliper replacement. FCA US urges customers to follow the instructions on their recall notices.

Those with questions or concerns may call the FCA US Customer Care Center at 1-800-853-1403.
