In certain states, where salt is used to de-ice the roads, corrosion can occur at the four-way joint connector of the hydraulic braking system leading to a brake fluid leak. This fluid loss can result in longer than expected stopping distance, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will apply an anti-corrosion wax to the four-way joint connector area to correct this concern. Some vehicles previously recalled of this concern may not have been repaired correctly. In addition, owners of vehicles outside of the affected states may request this recall be performed. Please contact your dealer to determine exactly how this recall affects your vehicle.
Brake lines may corrode excessively when salt water splashes behind a gap in the fuel tank protector. This can lead to brake line failure and leakage, and cause the brakes to fail. Dealers will inspect for leaking lines, apply rust proofing wax and replace lines found to be leaking free of charge to resolve the concern.
