Recall 18V086000

Braking Performance Reduced

Recall Details

The master cylinder of the brake system may allow brake fluid to leak into the brake booster, reducing braking performance. Dealers will replace the brake master cylinder free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The braking performance of the vehicle may be reduced due to a problem within the brake system master cylinder. This would extend stopping distances, and could result in a crash.
