The left front strut may have a stabilizer link bracket that was not properly welded in place. As a result the link may detach and cause damage to the tire and/or brake hose. A damaged tire could result in reduced steering ability. A damaged brake hose could result in increased stopping distance. Dealers will inspect and replace the left front strut if necessary to correct this concern.
