Chrysler Recalls 300,000 Vehicles Due To Potential Braking Problem

Chrysler has announced a recall of over 300,000 vehicles due to a potential problem with the car’s ability to brake while coasting uphill.

Affected vehicles include: 156,796 model-year 2006-2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Commander SUVs; 90,383 model year 2007 Jeep Wrangler SUVs; and 49,371 model year 2007 Dodge Nitro SUVs.

Chrysler says the defect may have caused one accident, but no injuries were reported. They’re also recalling “72,333 model year 2008 Dodge Avenger sedans and Chrysler Sebring convertibles to ensure proper function of driver and passenger front door latches and locks,” according to the Wall Street Journal.

Nobody managed to hurt themselves with the door latches either, just in case you were wondering.
