The brake system master cylinder may corrode internally. This may result in poor braking performance and lengthened stopping distances, which can cause an accident. Dealers will replace the master cylinder assembly.
2000 Acura RL Recalls
Acura is recalling certain 2000–2002 TL vehicles due to possible brake light switch failure, which is caused by assembly oil contaminating the electrical contacts. The brake lights may not illuminate when the brakes are applied, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will clean excess oil from the brake pedal assembly and replace the brake light switch.
