Dodge Recalls More Than 121,000 Darts Over Brake System Issue

Brakes are meant to slow, stop or keep a vehicle from moving when the driver doesn’t want it to, making them an integral part of the automobile. So when there’s a problem with the system, that’s a pretty big deal. And for that reason, Fiat Chrysler issued a recall for more than 121,000 vehicles. 

The Associated Press reports that the carmaker plans to recall 121,600 model year 2013 and 2014 Dodge Darts with 2-liter and 2.4-liter engines.

The recall was initiated because oil can get on parts of the vehicles’ braking systems, degrading parts and making it more difficult to brake.

So far, the company says it’s aware of two minor injuries and seven accidents related to the issue.

Owners of affected vehicles will be contacted and dealers will provide a fix.
