Passenger car - Legend
Product description
The recall concerns certain 2005, 2006 and 2007 model year vehicles, manufactured between 23 December 2005 and 6 February 2007 and within the VIN range from JHMKB1***7C200006 to JHMKB1***7C204817.
Risk
The product poses a risk of injuries (accident) because during regular brake fluid replacement or brake bleeding operations, it may be possible for a seal in the brake master cylinder to become deformed resulting in a small brake fluid leak. If the brake fluid level reduces significantly, the brake warning light and low brake fluid warning light will be activated in the instrument panel. If the vehicle is continued to be driven in this condition, the brake pedal stroke will gradually increase. Finally, if the above symptoms are ignored, one of the brake circuits may fail. Although the remaining circuit provides sufficient brake force to stop the vehicle, the stopping distance will increase.
