FCA Canada Recalls 19,000 SUVs and Vans Over Brake Issue

FCA Canada is recalling 19,000 vehicles because a problem with the brake system could lead to unsafe driving conditions.

According to a recall notice on Transport Canada’s website, a problem with the brake system may cause gas bubbles to form in the brake fluid on certain vehicles. This could cause a soft brake pedal feel and a reduction in brake performance, increasing the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property.

Affected vehicles from the model years 2018 and 2019 include the Dodge Grand Caravan, Dodge Journey, Jeep Cherokee and Jeep Compass.

To fix the problem, FCA dealers will bleed the rear brakes as necessary.
