KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A Kansas law firm has filed a class-action lawsuit against DaimlerChrysler Corp. over what it claims is a problem with many Jeep Grand Cherokees.

KMBC reported that the lawsuits were filed in Jackson County and Johnson County, Kan., over alleged problems with the front brakes on 1999 through 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokees.

The lawsuits allege that after as little as 5,000 miles, the steering wheel and front wheels "shake" and that drivers encounter severe vibrations through the steering wheel, floor, seat and pedals when the brakes are applied.

DaimlerChrysler has never issued a recall for a problem with the front brakes.

The lawsuits seek to force the carmaker to reimburse Kansas and Missouri residents for all costs spent repairing the brakes.

More Information:
Owners of Jeep Grand Cherokees can contact attorney Michael L. Hodges at (913) 888-7100.

huh...My Rube has been doing that since the first time i drove in mud. I have had to take apart my brakes a couple times and clean them after my rig develops the "shakes". The front brakes will lock up on occasion and the only fix is taking everything apart and cleaning them.

Thr front pads are almost worn out after only @ 8500 miles. I have been told that dirt gets into the piston seals and the pistons cant retrack normally, so pressure stays on the cylinders and it acts like Im riding the brakes.

Im not sure why it happens, but there have been 2 constants that seem to cause this. Driving in any kind of mud and having to realy use the brakes hard in an emergency like some idiot pulling out in front of me or when seeing some 18ish sweety in a tight halter top.... braless of course Mr. Green Anywho, that seems to be what causes this problem, then it goes away after a few miles.
