The affected vehicles were sold between July 2019 and February 2021 (Model Years 2020-2021).
The recall notice, lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), says: “Due to a manufacturing defect, the rear brake pipe may leak brake fluid.”
“If the rear brake pipe leaks, this may result in a loss of braking performance, which can increase the risk of serious injury or death to vehicle occupants and other road users,” the notice continues.
