1995 Cherokees and 1994-1995 Grand Cherokees Recalled
Washington, DC (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration has published the recall of certain 1995 Cherokees and
1994-1995 Grand Cherokee automobiles because the front disc brake rotors can experience
severe corrosion if operated for an extensive period in the "salt belt."
The reduced strength can allow the cast iron wear
surface to separate from the hub, reducing the brake effectiveness of the vehicle.
If the rotors are not replaced, the corrosion can eventually compromise the structural
integrity of the stamped steel center hub section of the rotor.
This recall affects passenger and multi-purpose
vehicles originally sold or currently registered in Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Maine,
Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio,
Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, or Wisconsin, and the District of Columbia.
Approximately 334,000 vehicles are affected by
this recall. Dealers will replace these rotors with rotors with a stainless steel
center section and which are coated with corrosion protection.
Owner notification began December 20, 1999. Owners
who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Chrysler at
