2004 Pontiac Grand Prix SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC NHTSA Campaign #04V287000
Summary: Certain passenger vehicles were produced with lower than specified torque on both front brake caliper to steering knuckle attachment bolts. With improper torque, the clamp load at the joint may not be adequate to prevent movement between the caliper bracket and knuckle.

Reduced braking or steering control could cause a crash.
