Hey look…it’s another huge recall from Detroit, but it’s from Chrysler this time.

Chrysler is recalling 870,000 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango SUVs this morning because of a brake defect. The automaker says that crimp joints in the brake boosters may corrode if they’re exposed to water. If that water freezes, the brake boosters won’t help with braking as they should.

Dealers will install a shield that will protect the brake boosters for free and replace any boosters that aren’t working correctly. Chrysler has already made changes to their design to make current and future brake boosters more resistant to corrosion.

The automaker knows of one accident caused by the brake defect. No injuries were reported.

Dodge Durangos and Jeep Grand Cherokees from the 2011 through 2014 model years are being recalled.

Chrysler will notify vehicle owners of the recall, which affects 644,354 vehicles sold in the United States.

Jeep and Dodge owners who have questions or concerns about this recall are advised to call 1-800-853-1403.
