Recall Alert: 2012 Dodge Journey, Fiat 500

2012 Dodge Journey

Chrysler is recalling 340 2012 Dodge Journey and Fiat 500 vehicles because sealing components in the brake system could degrade, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The affected vehicles, which were built between Oct. 24 and Oct. 26, may have contaminated brake fluid that could cause the components to degrade. This could lead to a loss of braking ability, increasing the risk of a crash.

The recall is expected to begin next month. Chrysler will replace all brake components that come into contact with hydraulic brake fluid at no charge. Owners can call Chrysler at 800-853-1403 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
