Chrysler recalls over 68,000 new cars
The automaker is fixing the brake system on 11 models, including Dodge Nitro and Jeep Compass.

DETROIT (Reuters) -- DaimlerChrysler AG's Chrysler Group said Friday it would recall more than 68,000 of its newest vehicles, including the just-released Dodge Nitro sport utility vehicle and the Jeep Compass.

Chrysler said that 62,339 vehicles from its 2007 model-year line-up would be recalled to fix a brake system problem it said could cause drivers to lose control.

Chrysler said 11 models across all three of its brands were affected by the recall with notices scheduled to go out to registered owners in February.

In addition to the Nitro and the Compass, 2007 models covered by the recall are the Chrysler Sebring, Chrysler 300, Dodge Charger, Dodge Magnum, Dodge Caliber, Jeep Commander, Jeep Grand Cherokee and Jeep Liberty, the company said.

Chrysler said some of the vehicles could suffer a failure of a computer that controls the brakes, causing a loss of anti-lock and brake distribution systems, traction control and speedometer functions.

The automaker said no accidents or injuries have been reported as a result of the brake glitch.

The company said owners of the models covered by the recall should take their vehicles to Chrysler Group dealers for inspection if the instrument panel warning light is illuminated.

Separately, Chrysler said it would recall 6,086 of its Sebring sedans to reprogram the heating and cooling systems because of a problem with windshield defrosting.

The company said owners would be notified of the recall in January.

Shares of DaimlerChrysler edged lower on the New York Stock Exchange Friday.

For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
