The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said the brake fluid reservoir filler cap on the vehicles allows air into the system, which can lead to increased stopping distances.
Dealers are to bleed air from the brake lines and replace the filler cap.
NHTSA, in its latest monthly report on safety recalls, also said Saab Cars USA Inc. is taking back 12,000 Saab 900s from the 1998 model year because passenger airbags may deploy without a crash.
The agency said a buildup of static electricity in the airbag module can lead to the deployments.
Most that have occurred were in cooler, drier climates and were triggered by someone wiping the instrument panel, starting the engine or closing a door.
Dealers are to install grounding straps for the passenger airbags, NHTSA said.
Other recalls that were reported by NHTSA include:
2001 DODGE DAKOTA QUAD CABProblem: Front, outside, lower anchor bolts for seats that are loose.
Fix: Tighten bolts.
1989-90 DODGE DAKOTAProblem: Steering gear separates from vehicle frame.
