1999-2000 AM General Hummers Recalled
Washington, DC (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration has published the recall of certain 1999-2000 AM General
Hummers, manufactured between July, 1998 - September, 1999, because a potential chafing
condition occurs between the flexible brake lines which connect the master cylinder to the
ABS modulator on these sport utility vehicles.
This condition can lead to one or both of the
brake lines developing a brake fluid leak, causing a reduction in brake line pressure and
resulting in longer-than-normal stopping distances.
Approximately 980 vehicles are affected by this
recall. Dealers will replace the master cylinder to ABS modulator lines.
Owner notification was expected to begin during
during February 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time
should contact AM General at 1-734-523-8000.
