problem #7

Nov 162008

Ram 1500 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,089 miles
The contact owns a 2000 Dodge Ram 1500. While pulling out of the driveway, the contact noticed that the brakes felt low. He also noticed that the brake hose assembly was leaking brake fluid from the front brakes. The VIN was not included in NHTSA campaign id number 01V038000 (service brakes, hydraulic foundation components: Hoses, lines piping, and fittings); therefore, they would not assist with the repair. The vehicle is currently parked at the contact's residence. The failure and current mileages were 70,089. Updated 04-17-09 updated 04/20/09.
