General Motors Has Recalled the 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix

(SafetyAlerts) - The U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced.

General Motors Corporation

Models: Pontiac Grand Prix Year: 2003

Number Potentially Involved: 59,528

Dates of Manufacture: October 2002 – August 2003

Noncompliance: Certain passenger vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 135, "Passenger Car Braking Systems." On some of these vehicles, the right rear brake hose fitting may not be tightened properly, and a brake fluid leak could occur. If enough fluid leaks, the brake pedal will be lower than normal, stopping distances will be longer and a crash could occur.

Remedy: Dealers will tighten the right rear brake hose fitting to the proper torque specification, and add brake fluid if necessary. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Sept. 4, 2003. Owners may contact Pontiac at 1-800-620-7668.

[NHTSA Recall No.03V331/GM Recall No. 03045].

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 
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.
