Fiat Chrysler Recalling Over 121,000 Dodge Darts Due To Brake Issue

Fiat Chrysler has announced that it will recall 121,603 Dodge Dart small cars due to an issue with the vehicles' braking systems.

The Italian-American automaker said that oil can get on parts of the braking system, which could lead to the brakes becoming difficult to use if the oil degrades on those parts, according to Chicago Sun-Times. While the brakes will still work, issue may make it longer for drivers to stop their cars.

FCA said that the sound of a vacuum leak might lead to the issue.

The recall covers Darts with 2-liter and 2.4-liter engines made in 2013 and 2014 and includes 105,458 vehicles in the U.S., 11,996 in Canada, 3,705 in Mexico, and 444 outside of the North American Free Trade Agreement, Autoblog noted.

The company has so far received reports of two minor injuries and seven accidents related to the issue.

FCA will contact dealers and owners of the affected vehicles within the next 60 days and fix the cars free of charge.
