Chrysler LLC said Friday it will recall an estimated 296,550 vehicles to reprogram the electronic-control unit to eliminate the potential for a momentary delay in braking when coasting up a hill.
The auto maker said the supplier-related condition can only occur in certain limited situations.
The company said the affected vehicles include: 156,796 model-year 2006-2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Commander SUVs; 90,383 model year 2007 Jeep Wrangler SUVs; and 49,371 model year 2007 Dodge Nitro SUVs.
Chrysler said it is aware of one accident that may be related to this condition, with no reported injuries. The company said owners will be notified beginning in September.
In addition, Chrysler will also recall about 72,333 model year 2008 Dodge Avenger sedans and Chrysler Sebring convertibles to ensure proper function of driver and passenger front door latches and locks. The company said no accidents or injuries have been reported and owners will be notified in October.
