FCA US recalls Dodge Journey vehicles with model-year 2009-2016

ABR Staff Writer Published 09 May 2016

FCA US is recalling some 10,944 U.S.-market midsize crossover vehicles fitted with optional block heaters to address fluid-line durability in extreme, cold-weather conditions.

An investigation found some lines carrying power-steering fluid may leak at engine start-up, when the vehicle is subject to extreme cold.

Steering is not lost in such circumstances. However, if a vehicle is so-affected, the amount of physical effort required to steer may increase.

The Company is unaware of any related injuries or accidents.

Affected are certain model-year 2009-2016 Dodge Journey vehicles. An estimated 187,436 vehicles in Canada are also subject to this recall.

Replacement parts are expected to become available soon. Affected customers will be notified accordingly.

FCA US urges customers to follow the instructions on all recall notices.
