The description you have posted is for Recall F43 which has been posted sometime ago and was annouced by Chrysler in October. There is an upcoming Recall for a different issue involving the ABS brakes which will be a reprogramming of the ABS module. That Recall was reported last week in national publications. Thanks for the head-up though.

Just saw this today. What transmission(s) did this affect? I shift into Neutral often when driving down the mountain, then back into Drive, to coast better on the less steep parts of the road. Would hate to have the rear wheels lock up at 50mph when I am not standing on the brakes!
