FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 29, 1999
Contact: Tim Hurd
Tel. No. (202) 366-9550
AM General Corporation
Models: AM General Hummer
Number Involved: 153
Dates of Manufacture: October 1998 - February 1999
Defect: On certain sport utility vehicles, the nuts used to attach the
master cylinder to the hydroboost bolts were of the metric type rather than the required
SAE type. A loose master cylinder condition can occur, causing longer than normal brake
pedal travel during brake pedal applications.
Remedy: Dealers will replace the
master cylinder-to-hydroboost mounting bolts and nuts. Owner notification was to begin
during April 1999. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time
should contact AM General at 1-734-523-8000.
