Approximately 6,100 model-year 2017-18 Alfa Romeo Giulia sedans equipped with 280-horsepower engines and all-wheel drive are being recalled due to issues with the brake fluid line. The brake fluid line may contact a coolant hose clamp which could cause brake fluid to leak onto the exhaust, increasing the risk of a fire.
Alfa Romeo automaker Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will begin notifying owners Jan. 15. Owners can call Fiat Chrysler Automobiles at 800-853-1403 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To fix the problem, dealers will install a bracket on the brake fluid line to prevent contact with the coolant hose clamp. The brake line will be replaced if any damage is found.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
