New Safety Recall Advanced Communication – Z99

FCA US LLC (FCA US) has announced a safety recall on certain 2017 and 2018 model year (JC) Dodge Journey vehicles.



Some of the above vehicles may have been built with headlamp assemblies that contain a front amber side reflex reflector that may not meet the photometric requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) 108. If the reflection of light from the reflector is below specification, the position and dimensions of the vehicle may not always be perceived by other drivers, which can cause a vehicle crash without prior warning.

The condition described above does not comply with FMVSS No. 108 which requires vehicles to conform to specific photometry requirements for the reflex reflector color. Vehicles built with the affected amber side reflex reflector do not meet the applicable photometric requirements.



FCA US will conduct a voluntary safety recall on all affected vehicles. Remedy is under development for involved vehicles and not currently available. Dealers will be notified of the launch of this safety recall by way of established communication methods. This recall is estimated to launch in 4th Quarter of 2022.
