Notes: There's no way around it, the Cherokee's transmission is junk. There's no other explanation for why a vehicle, usually with under 40,000 miles, would have so many complaints

This is the second recall that we have had on this vehicle in less than a year. Here is the new real information. Summary: Chrysler group llc (Chrysler) is recalling certain model year 2011-2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge durango vehicles manufactured from January 5, 2010, through September 8, 2013. The subject vehicles have a brake booster with a center shell that may corrode and allow water to get inside. We called the dealership, and they stated they will check the break booster, but if there is no corrosion, they will not replace it. Here is my question. What happens if there isn't any corrosion now when it's checked, but it becomes corroded 6-12 months later? I don't foresee the dealership telling us to come in every month to check it out. So we just have to plug along driving every day unsure if our brakes will work or not. This is ridiculous and majorly unsafe. I believe the dealership should replace the part even if there is no corrosion! period. This is the kind of stuff that leads to major lawsuits after accidents.

Cherokee 6-cyl

  • 3,600 miles
Was coming to a stop at an intersection. Had only driven 20-30 yards from where I was parked. Going very slowly but brake did not respond and I hit another car coming on the outside lane. No medical injuries but considerable damage to my car and more to the auto I hit. Had received a recall notice just a few days before. Have reported to Chrysler and was told I would receive a call in a few days which I have never received. I feel I am being stonewalled. Also am aware there have been other incidents like this which Chrysler must have known about.
