Chrysler recalls 870k SUVs for brake issue

CNN -- Another "Big Three" automaker has issued a big recall.
Chrysler is recalling about 870,000 Sport Utility Vehicles. The problem has been that customers have been complaining about brake pedals that feel too firm when pushed.
The issue is caused by exposure to water, and dealers will fix it by installing a shield that protects the brake boosters from corrosion.
Models affected include certain Jeep Grand Cherokee's and Dodge Durangos from the 2011-2014 model years.
There are about 650,000 customers involved in the U.S.
Dealers will reach out to them directly. Or, if owners are concerned, they can call the dealer themselves for further details.
Chrysler says its aware of one related accident, and no injuries.
That pales in comparison to the recall drama General Motors finds itself in.
