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.

In areas where salt is used on the roads, slush containing road salt can splash through a gap in the fuel tank protector resulting in corrosion of the brake lines. This corrosion may lead to brake fluid leakage resulting in reduced braking performance, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the affected vehicles and leaking brake lines will be replaced. Anti-corrosion rustproofing wax will be applied to all recalled vehicles.
