Chrysler has announced that it is recalling certain model year 2012 Dodge Journey and Fiat 500 vehicles manufactured from October 24, 2011 through October 26, 2011. They stated that some vehicles were assembled with contaminated brake fluid and may experience a degradation of the sealing components within the brake system.
This could lead to loss of braking ability increasing the risk of a crash. Chrysler will notify owners and replace all brake components that come in contact with hydraulic brake fluid. This service will be preformed free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during March 2012. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403.
