RECALL: Chrysler Group brake hose safety recall for full-size vans

February 28, 2014 | By Anthony Capkun

February 28, 2014 – EBMag has learned Chrysler Group LLC will conduct a safety recall to inspect about 6800 full-size vans and, if necessary, replace a brake hose. We do not know whether this safety recall affects any Canadian customers.

The auto maker says a routine post-production test on one van discovered damage that could degrade brake performance. The damage was linked to the use of a specific wrench during assembly, which is no longer used.

Chrysler Group is unaware of any related injuries, accidents or complaints, and about half of the affected vehicles are still in dealer hands. The company expects less than 2% of the total will require repair; if damage is discovered, the brake hose will be replaced, and all repair costs will be borne by the company. Chrysler says it will notify affected customers.
