Number Involved: 2,085

Dates of Manufacture: January 1998 – May 2002

Defect: On certain passenger vehicles and limousines, the low pressure brake fluid feed pipe between the master cylinder and remote reservoir has the potential to trap or retain air. This air could enter the master cylinder and cause excessive pedal travel and partial failure of the primary circuit, increasing the risk of a crash.

Remedy: Dealers will replace both the feed pipe and the brake fluid reservoir. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during August 2002. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Rolls-Royce at 1-800-777-6923. [NHTSA Recall No. 02V187/Rolls-Royce Recall No. RE 02/01].

Important Note Regarding Auto Recalls
Frequently SafetyAlerts will list auto recalls before
your dealer will know about them. If you have a vehicle
affected by one of these posted recalls be sure and
write down the NHTSA 
CAMPAIGN ID Number.
If your dealer doesn't know about the recall when you
check, ask them how they are notified of recalls and
when the next update is due.
