Ford Recalls 1.5 Million Cars And Trucks

March 17, 2023- Ford has announced that roughly 1.5 million cars and trucks within the U.S. are to be recalled. Two separate recall notices have been issued, the largest recall notice being for the 2013 through 2018 Ford Fusion and the Lincoln MKX midsize cars. Documents of the recall details stated a problem with the brake hoses rupturing. This could increase brake pedal travel and make stopping distances longer.

Ford has stated they are aware of one crash currently resulting from the problem, however they did not mention if there were any injuries caused by the fault. The estimated number of cars to be recalled is roughly 1.3 million cars as a result of the problem and owners of the vehicles will be notified April 17 via letter. Owners will receive a second letter telling them that a replacement part is available to make the fix.

Hoses will be replaced by dealers as necessary.

The second recall will be affecting 220,000 F-150 trucks of the 2021 year model. The recall details state that the window wiper arms can break and lead to a increased crash risk. Dealers will replace the arms as needed and owners of the trucks will be notified March 27th.
