Fiat Chrysler is recalling nearly 710,000 Jeep and Dodge SUVs in North America because an improperly installed brake shield could let water leak in and limit braking ability.
The company says brake booster shields were added as part of a 2014 recall, but a check of warranty claims found that some weren't installed correctly. In those cases water can cause corrosion or get inside the booster and freeze. That can reduce braking ability, increasing the risk of a crash. Fiat Chrysler says it knows of one potentially related crash but no injuries.
