Due to contact with the right and left front fender liners, the brake lines in those areas may wear and cause a brake fluid leak, compromising brake performance and safe operation.

What Should You Do?

Chrysler notified owners of affected vehicles starting in 2010. You can check with your dealer to see if your vehicle is involved in this program. It is helpful to have your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) on hand when you contact them.
