So, finally after nearly 6 months the FCA geniuses finally have parts for the recall. I read somewhere there were 7 accidents and 2 injuries due to brake failure, but that was back in December. Those numbers are probably higher now. Thankfully, no deaths. I suppose the FCA's room full of lawyers would handle any lawsuits brought about from the accidents. That's why they weren't in a hurry to get the parts out.

Anyway, had mine done yesterday. Just needed the hose replaced. It looks a bit different from the one in the photo posted by Delta Dart. Vehicle Auto part Motor vehicle Engine Fuel line

don't get confused now, they replaced the brake booster vacuum line with one that is safer, but because of THAT design, I started getting flutter in the brake pedal 1-2 seconds AFTER coming to a complete stop. so zip ties don't fix the brake failure, the vacuum tube does. the zip ties fix a side effect of the safer vacuum tube.

so here are the pictures of newly designed tube (1st, 2nd, and 3rd pictures) and here is my remedy to the flutter in the pedal (4th picture):
My 2014 GT got the new vacuum tube installed. Didn't need the booster. As you can see in the photo, there is a plastic clip attached to the tube and to a wiring harness. Can't recall if that clip was on the old tube. It does keep the tube from flopping around.
