The press statement on October 03, 2017, explained the reason of the recall as the shields designed to protect the boosters from water intrusion were compromised. Water seepage inside could cause corrosion and/or freezing of brakes which will degrade the functioning of the brakes. The Company decided to take action when it became aware of a potential accident without injuries as reported. The Company explained that an actual potential booster issue will be preceded by a warning light possibly along with the activation of the anti-lock braking system. As per the Company through a compromised booster will still deliver brake function in compliance with the US federal safety standards except loss in excessive brake-pedal firmness.

The Company has exhorted the customers to contact their dealers in case they experience any such conditions. The same set of vehicles was recalled in 2014 and the shields were installed in conjunction with the changes that time when 95% of the vehicles were serviced. The Company upon review of warranty data found shields on some vehicles to have been installed improperly leading to an FCA US inquiry.

This new move of the Company comes after seven months of testing on the severity of the issue and post discussions with National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) on the concern of some dealers’ failure to install the shield correctly.

The American automobile industry has been grappling with frequent and major vehicles recalls for a long time recalling 53.2 million vehicles in 2016 alone, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
