Statement From FCA Regarding Fluid Lines

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is voluntarily recalling an estimated 10,944 U.S. market midsize crossovers equipped with optional block heaters to address fluid-line durability in extreme, cold-weather conditions. An investigation found some lines carrying power-steering fluid may leak at engine start-up, when the Vehicle is subject to extreme cold.

Steering is not lost in such circumstances. However, if a vehicle is affected, the amount of physical effort required to steer may increase. FCA is unaware of any related injuries or accidents.

Affected are certain model-year 2009-2016 Dodge Journey vehicles. An estimated 187,436 vehicles in Canada are also subject to this recall. Replacement parts are expected to become available soon and affected customers will be notified accordingly. FCA US urges customers to follow the instructions on all recall notices.

Those with questions may call the FCA US Customer Care Center at 1-800-853-1403.
