Rolls-Royce Phantom safety recall

Rolls-Royce Motors, Inc. has recall

Certain Rolls-Royce/Phantom 2003-2006 and 2008-2010 have a brake problem.

The specific vehicles are certain model year 2003-2010 Phantom, model year 2007-2010 Phantom drophead coupe and model year 2008-2010 Phantom coupe vehicles.

What is the danger?

The problem is a check valve of the brake vacuum pump may leak a small amount of lubricating oil. This could result in contamination of the brake booster. The contamination could affect the power assist braking. In the worst case scenario there could be a complete loss of power assist braking. Of course, this unexpected loss or reduction in power will increase the risk of a car crash.
