Brake Master Cylinder Inspection Safey Recall Notice!

I just got this in the mail today.

SSC 40K-2000 Model Year Celica and Echo

Brake Master Cylinder Inspection Safety Recall Notice

Dear Toyota Customer:

This notice is sent to you in accordance with the requirements of the national Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act. Toyota has decided that a defect, which relates to motor vehicle safety, exist in certain 2000 Model Year Toyota Celica and Echo vehicles.

What is the Problem?

On a small number of 2000 model year Toyota Celica and Echo vehicles, there is a possiblity that the recess that retains a rubber seal ring, which is located at the end of the brake master cylinder, may be rorroded due to an imporper cleaning process. In this condition, brake fluid may leak from the seal, or a small amount of air may enter the mater cylinder, which could lead to an increase of vehicle stopping distance and thus raise the possiblity of a crash.

What will Toyota do?

Any Toyota dealer will inspect the brake master cylinder to deteremine if the end of the brake master cylinder is corroded. Based upon the inspection results, it may be necessary for the Toyota dealer to replace the brake master cylinder and the brake booster. Both the inspection, and if necessary, brake master cylinder and brake booster replacement will be performed at NO COST to you.

What should you do?

Please contact your authorized Toyota dealer and make an appointment to have your vehicle inspected at your earliest convenience. The labor time to inspect the brake master cylinder is approx. one hour. If the replacement of the brake master cylinder and brake booster is necessary, the labor time is approx. three hours. However, depending upon the dealer's work schedule, it may be necessary to make your vehicle available for a longer period of time.
