February 28, 2014 , Auburn Hills, Mich. – Chrysler Group LLC will conduct a safety recall to inspect approximately 6,800 full-size vans and, if necessary, replace a brake hose.
A routine post-production test on one van discovered damage that could degrade brake performance. Damage was linked to the use of a specific wrench during assembly; it is no longer used.
Chrysler Group is unaware of any related injuries, accidents or complaints.
Approximately half of the affected vehicles, all model-year 2014 Ram ProMasters, are in dealer hands. Chrysler Group expects less than two percent of the total will require repair.
If damage is observed, the brake hose will be replaced.
Chrysler Group will notify affected customers; all repair costs will be borne by the Company.
Customers who remain concerned may call 1-800-853-1403.
