If you own a Jeep Grand Cherokee, you may have some money coming to you.
Class action lawsuits were filed Monday in Jackson and Johnson counties alleging DaimlerChrysler hid information about defective front brakes on model years 1999 through 2004.
For more information, contact Lenexa lawyer Michael Hodges at 913-888-7100.

TheKansasCityChannel.com indicates that the lawsuit it only open to residents of Kansas and Missouri only:
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.
