1.5 Million Ford Vehicles Recalled

According to the Associated Press, Ford has announced two separate recalls that affect around 1.5 million cars and trucks in the U.S. The larger of the two recalls involves 2013 to 2018 Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKX midsize cars, affecting an estimated 1.3 million vehicles. The problem is related to the brake hoses, which can rupture, causing brake fluid to leak. This can lead to longer stopping distances and an increase in brake pedal travel. Although Ford has reported one crash caused by the issue, it is unclear if there were any injuries resulting from it. Owners of the affected vehicles will receive a letter on April 17th, notifying them of the problem, and a second letter when the part is available to fix the issue. Dealers will replace the hoses if needed.

The other recall pertains to 220,000 F-150 trucks from the 2021 model year. The issue is with the windshield wiper arm, which can break and potentially cause a crash. Owners of the affected trucks will be notified on March 27th, and dealers will replace the wiper arm if necessary.

It’s important for owners of these vehicles to heed the recall and have the necessary repairs done as soon as possible. Neglecting to fix the issues could lead to dangerous situations on the road, potentially resulting in accidents and injuries. If you own a 2013 to 2018 Ford Fusion or Lincoln MKX midsize car or a 2021 F-150 truck, be sure to check if your vehicle is included in the recall and take the appropriate action to ensure your safety on the road.
