The contact owns a 1997 Jeep Cherokee. After the vehicle was serviced under NHTSA campaign number: 13V252000 (fuel system, gasoline, structure), the steering wheel became difficult to maneuver. In addition, there was excessive smoke coming from the tire and rim on the front passenger side. The contact smelled a burning odor. The vehicle was towed to the dealer where it was diagnosed that the entire braking system failed. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 141,501.
