2010 Dodge Nitro RecallsChrysler Recalls 2010 Models Due to Braking Problem
Chrysler has recalled certain 2010 Dodge Nitro, Dodge Ram, Jeep Liberty, and Jeep Wrangler models because they may have been built with an improperly formed master cylinder to hydraulic control unit (HCU) brake tube assembly end flare. This can lead to a loss of brake fluid and reduced braking performance, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the brake tubes free of charge.
Some vehicles may have been assembled with a deformed brake booster input rod retainer or no retainer at all. As a result, the brakes may fail without warning, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will install a new brake booster input rod retainer to correct this problem. This recall is expected to begin during February 2010. The Chrysler recall number is J37.
