THE Chrysler Group has been forced to fix 490 vehicles – ranging from the 300C sedan and wagon, Dodge Caliber and Jeep Compass, Cherokee, Wrangler, Grand Cherokee and Commander (according to Product Recalls Australia) – after it was found that "the software programmed into the ABS control module may cause the rear wheels to lock up during certain braking conditions".
According to DaimlerChrysler Australia-Pacific, 75 affected vehicles had been sold prior to the recall notice being issued earlier this month, and that the remaining 415 were in its possession and "will be rectified as part of the normal rigorous pre-delivery process".
Owners have been advised in writing to contact their local dealer to have a new version of the software installed.
Concerned customers can ring 1300 300 896 with their vehicle’s VIN (Vehicle Identification number) number for further clarification.
