2008-toyota-fj-cruiser
Toyota is recalling 655 model-year 2007-12 versions of the FJ Cruiser SUV due to problems with an accessory brake kit, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The affected vehicles use Toyota Racing Development (TRD) brake kits P/N PTR09-35070 and TRD High-Performance brake kits P/N PTR09-35100. Improper installation of the kits could damage the outer brake tube because of interference with the balance weight. Brake fluid could leak from the damaged tube, resulting in loss of braking performance and an increased risk of an accident.

Toyota will notify owners starting in mid-November, and dealers will replace the affected parts for free. Owners can call Toyota at 800-331-4331or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
