Issue

On certain vehicles, incorrect front brake hoses may have been installed and could cause the hoses to contact adjacent components while the vehicle is being driven. This could result in premature wear to the hoses and potentially lead to a brake fluid leak, which could increase stopping distances and increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property. Correction: Dealers will inspect the front right hand and left hand brake hoses to determine whether they are from the suspect population, and replace as necessary.
