Chrysler Group on Wednesday said it would recall about 800,000 vehicles to fix a defect in the brake systems, after it received complaints about excessive brake-pedal firmness.

Chrysler's Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango SUVs, model years 2011-2014, are under inspection and brake boosters will be replaced wherever necessary, Chrysler said in a statement.

Chrysler said it was aware of one related accident but not of any injuries.
