DaimlerDhrysler Australia has recalled nearly 500 vehicles sold in the last 2 months that have been fitted with incorrect ABS (anti-lock-brake system) software. It is essential that all customers of the following vehicles contact their dealer immediately.

The cars include

  • Chrysler 300C & 300C Touring,
  • Dodge Caliber,
  • Jeep Compass,
  • Jeep Grand Cherokee,
  • Jeep Commander,
  • Jeep Cherokee
  • Jeep Wrangler

Problem: The software programmed into the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) control module may cause the rear wheels to lock up during certain braking conditions. Which could result in a loss of vehicle control.

What to do? Contact any authorised Chrysler dealer. If you have sold the vehicle please contact DaimlerChrysler on telephone 03 9566 9380, fax 03 9566 6223 or via e-mail: renee.boyd@daimlerchrysler.com
