Additional information:

Among the 74 recalls the NHTSA has announced this August comes news of the following:

Industrias Martinrea de Mexico SA de CV (“Martinrea”) has submitted a Defect Information Report based upon decisions made by Chrysler (FCA US LLC) and Ford Motor Company to conduct recalls (numbers 18V277 and 18V389 respectively). As estimated 3,931 Brake Circuit Hose Assemblies located between the master cylinder and the hydraulic control unit, may have been manufactured without anti-corrosion plating on the coupling fittings, or “ferrules”, of the hoses. This can lead to premature corrosion, and result in a brake fluid leak.

According to the NHTSA, a brake fluid leak can reduce brake effectiveness, increasing the risk of a crash.

Martinrea is working with the affected vehicle manufacturers. Dealers for those manufacturers will replace the Brake Hoses, free of charge. Chrysler owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler’s number for this recall is U41. Ford owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford’s number for this recall is 18S19.
