Ford Recalls 125k Bronco Sport and Escapes
Ford Motor Co. is recalling approximately 125,000 Bronco Sport and Escape vehicles in North America over a defect with the rear brake linings that could affect braking performance.
The recall covers vehicles from the 2021-22 model years. The rear brake linings on those vehicles might have been manufactured incorrectly, and “during certain situations, the driver may have to apply more brake pedal force, and the distance required to stop the vehicle may be extended, increasing the risk of a crash,” the automaker said in a notice to U.S. auto safety regulators.
Dealers will be notified starting Jan. 3rd. Vehicle owners will be notified starting Jan. 10th.
