Porsche Cars North America, Inc. "Porsche" is recalling certain 1L containers of Porsche-brand Brake Fluid, part number 00004330552, as well as 30L containers of Brake Fluid, part number 00004330553, manufactured September 1, 2015, to August 31, 2016. These bottles of brake fluid state "DOT" and not the required "DOT 4." As such, these bottles of brake fluid fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard "FMVSS" number 116, "Motor Vehicle Brake Fluids."
If the brake fluid isn't labeled in accordance with the regulations, the brake fluid may unintentionally be used in a vehicle brake system that is incompatible with that type of fluid, affecting brake performance and increasing the risk of a crash.
Porsche will notify dealers, and have the the brake fluid containers relabeled, free of charge. The recall began December 2016. Owners may contact Porsche customer service at 1-800-767-7243.
