Defect: If the incorrect brake fluid is used in the brake system, it is possible that the rear seal can become dry and curl in its recess, due to the operation of the piston. This can result in a brake fluid leak, which will, when the fluid reaches a low level, illuminate the brake fluid low warning light on the dash.
Action: Recall all affected vehicles and replace the rear seal with an improved one.
