Ford Recalls Older Model Cars
Ford Motor Co. is recalling nearly 200,000 older-model cars because of a potential separated brake pedal bumper, according to the NHTSA. The malfunction could cause the brake lights to illuminate continuously, confusing other drivers on the road. Vehicle affected are certain Fusion and Lincoln MKZ sedans from the 2014 to 2015 model years, and certain 2015 Mustangs, with potentially 199,085 vehicles affected.
The vehicles were all sold or registered throughout the southern U.S. or in Hawaii, as exposure to high temperatures and humidity can cause the brake pedal bumper to corrode.
