DETROIT (AP) -- Chrysler Group LLC is recalling 24,177 vehicles because of a defect that could result in brake failure.
The recall includes 2010 models of the Chrysler Sebring, Dodge Avenger, Dodge Nitro, Jeep Commander, Jeep Grand Cherokee and Jeep Liberty and 2009 and 2010 models of the Dodge Ram pickup.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced the recall Tuesday.
Chrysler said the problem was discovered during routine quality inspections and that it received no owner complaints or reports of injuries. The automaker said some vehicles were built with improperly formed brake booster push rod retaining clips or without a clip, potentially resulting in push rod separation from the brake pedal assembly. The brake booster push rod helps exert the force necessary for braking.
All affected assembly plants have held back new vehicles and are repairing them as needed.
Owners will be notified starting this month. Chrysler will replace faulty or missing clips for free.
