    • Date Announced: MARCH 13, 2006
    • Vehicles Affected: 7,440

    Summary: Certain aftermarket brake hydraulic master cylinders sold as replacement brake cylinders for certain Ford, DaimlerChrysler, and Jeep passenger vehicles. These brake cylinders were sold under the brand names of Napa, raybestos, aimco, ac delco, Carquest, bendix, and wagner. Only products that were manufactured from July 27, 2005 through January 17, 2006 (date codes 0529 through 0602) are subject to this recall. When subject to very cold temperatures, an internal seal in the master cylinder could lose flexibility and may cause brake fluid to leak.

    Consequence: Loss of brake fluid can lead to a decrease in brake line pressure and an increase in stopping distance, which can result in a vehicle crash.

    Actions: Affinia (brake parts, Inc.) will replace the subject brake hydraulic master cylinders free of charge. The recall began on March 20, 2006. Owners can contact affina group customer service at 1-800-323-0354. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #06E022000 »

  4. 2001 Jeep Wrangler EQUIPMENT NHTSA Campaign #04E041000

    • Date Announced: JUNE 07, 2004
    • Vehicles Affected: 80

    Summary: Bestop aftermarket rear shell roof racks, manufactured between April 27 and May 20, 2004, designed for use with the bestop hardtop made for the 1986-1995 and 1997-2003 Jeep Wrangler. The cockpit cover may not stay latched to the roof rack because the latch bracket mispositions the rotary latch to the cockpit cover. As a result, the cockpit cover may not stay latched to the roof rack and could separate from the roof rack. This recall only pertains to aftermarket rear shell roof racks and has no relation to any original equipment installed on Jeep Wrangler vehicles by DaimlerChrysler.

    Consequence: Should this occur, the cockpit could cause injury by striking persons outside the vehicle or could become a distraction or an obstacle to other drivers, possibly resulting in a vehicle crash.

    Actions: Bestop will notify its customers and provide a repair kit and installation instructions free of charge. Owner notification began June 16, 2004.
