Chrysler to Recall Dodge Nitro, Jeep Liberty Vehicles With Manual Transmissions

October 22, 2008

WASHINGTON, D.C. --- Chrysler is recalling 3,663 MY 2007-2008 Dodge Nitro and MY 2008 Jeep Liberty vehicles equipped with manual transmissions, the NHTSA reported on its website.

"The park brake lever clutch drum may distort and reduce the effectiveness of the park brake system," the agency said. As a result, "this could allow the vehicle to move inadvertently and cause a crash without warning."

Dealers will replace the park brake lever assembly free of charge to resolve the problem. The recall will begin this month. Owners can contact Chrysler at (800) 853-1403.
