The problem

In affected vehicles, the rear brake caliper bolts may not be tightened to specification. This is a failure to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) No. 135, “Light Vehicle Brake Systems.”

Loose brake caliper bolts may reduce braking performance and result in longer stopping distances, both of which may increase the risk of a vehicle crash.
