The Fiat Chrysler Automobiles group (FCA) will review 1,315 vehicles in Spain due to a defect in the braking system of some of its models. In total, it will call for revision 210,000 units in several countries.
The global review campaign launched by the Italian-American consortium was born after an internal investigation in which it was detected that some vehicles could incorporate a brake system, manufactured by a supplier that would not have been produced according to the FCA specifications.
Fiat Chrysler has indicated that in very new vehicles with low mileage, air bubbles could be found in the brake fluid , which would negatively affect, in certain circumstances, the system, increasing the braking distance.
The models affected by this measure are the Dodge Journey, as well as the Dodge Grand Caravan and the Jeep Compass and Cherokee. Total 154,337 vehicles units called for review are concentrated in the United States, 19,066 units in Canada, some 900 units in Mexico and 35,562 units outside of North America.
