Ford Recalls 196,000 F-150s and SUVs
Ford Motor Co. is expanding a recall from June 2020 by adding nearly 196,000 older-model pickups and SUVs because of an issue with leaking brake fluid that may reduce front brake function.
Ford previously recalled about 292,300 F-150 pickups from the 2014 to 2017 model years for the problem. The latest recall covers certain 2016-17 Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator SUVs and 2016-18 F-150 pickups, all equipped with 3.5-liter EcoBoost engines.
To fix the issue, dealers will replace the brake master cylinder. If the master cylinder is leaking, dealers also will replace the brake booster. Dealers were notified starting March 15th. Ford expects to notify vehicle owners starting April 25th.
Ford is also recalling an estimated 78,376 2021-2022 Edge vehicles because a software error may cause the rearview camera to display a blank or distorted image when the vehicle is in reverse. To fix the problem, Ford is ensuring that the rearview camera software will be updated by a dealer, or through an over-the-air (OTA) update, at no cost to owners. Owner notification letters will be mailed April 25th.
