Chrysler will be sending letters to owners of 2006 and 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokees, Commanders, and Wranglers, as well as 2007 Dodge Nitros. Those vehicles fall under the company's latest recall to fix a potential problem with their brakes.

The vehicles' electronic braking system can cause "momentary braking delays" when traveling uphill, which, as we all know, is hardly ever a good thing. The recall affects just over 296,000 vehicles, and owners who have already experienced brake problems are asked not to wait on letters, but seek their nearest Chrysler dealership ASAP.

Thanks, Mavkato, for the tip!

      And where is the article about Honda recalling 190,000 06/07 Civics for wheels falling off?????
        • 7 Years Ago
        Barney, I'm getting it of LeftLaneNews. It was posted prior to the Chrysler recall story, and sorry - its 183k Civics ......

        http://www.leftlanenews.com/honda-recalls-182756-civic-sedans.html

        So now my story is straight, RIGHT?

        Also, why is Autoblog not reporting the recent Toyota recall on 700,000 2002-2006 Camry doors coming off ejecting the occupants on the freeway.

        Autoblog is biased against the domestics as always.

        Thanks RicardoHead. It appears the recall is quite a novelty for Honda, whereas The Nitro and Patriot appear in the top fourteen most-recalled list. I do see your point. Chrysler recalls is not big news and Honda is.

      All the sheep will soon be bashing Chrysler for this in future posts so it's good I got to comment early.

      Look at the recall lists for 2006, almost every company is on it.

      The Nitro's and Wrangler's are almost brand new products eve.

      However I do home the Commanders that get recalled are melted down into ashtrays.

      At least Chrysler will now feel part of the elite. As someone pointed out, recalls are becoming normal.
      • 7 Years Ago
      and thats why i dont buy any car (honda, toyota, gm) engineered or assembled in the USA.
      • 7 Years Ago
      DONT YOU KNOW THEY DONT REPORT BAD STUFF ABOUT HONDA !!!! I GUESS ITS BETTER TO HAVE YOUR REAR WHEEL FALL OFF AND GO CRASHING OUT OF CONTROL !!!!
        • 7 Years Ago
        Maybe you, Tim & recardoHead can get your stories to jive better. Doors or wheels falling off Camry or Honda's? Autoblog may just prefer facts, instead.
        • 7 Years Ago
        CAPS on is the equivalence of SHOUTING and your point is still pointless. The story is about yet another recall for Chrysler. It maters not that you think brakes aren't as important as wheel bearings.
      • 7 Years Ago
      I guess one of the reasons why you guys got rid of your Nitro, claiming someone had "won" it.
      • 7 Years Ago
      20 people complained momentary loss of brakes while..........coasting uphill.....yes coasting uphill......chrysler is just reprograming the computer.......now for the civic once the wheel falls off its off....damaging the car severly...most headlines on news pages ect. never will mention honda but sure as hell make sure to mention chrysler...
      • 7 Years Ago
      Now for someone to say fairness in journalism....MY ASS !!!!!If your gonna report one manufactures recalls and make a big deal about it,report them all....this what some people would call RACIST !!!!
      • 7 Years Ago
      All the red necks are losing their minds here. This kind of thinking is exactly what's wrong with the domestic car market. Blame everyone else but self for any failure and hope it's going to get better. Just reading some of the comments give you a great cross section and the mindset. This is the exact thing that drives most people out of the domestics. The retards that defends it.
      You must blame McDonalds for you being fat too...

      Fault brakes ---standard on all new Dodge Nitros.
      • 7 Years Ago
      A recall for brakes? That's just a cover! They recalled them cos they're ugly!
      • 7 Years Ago
      Well, I look at it this way. If the brakes fail at least they are trail rated/off road vehicles. At least Jeeps can be driven off road with no doors and if they lose a wheel so what. Try driving a Civic with no wheels off road. I bet Toyota dealers make you pull up out back if you show up without doors. The Civics probably get brought in on a ramp truck under a tarp. This is a test? If you lose your braking do you know how to stop the vehicle? If you lose a door or wheel what do you do?
