Ford Issues Two Safety Recalls in North America
May 21, 2018—Ford is issuing two safety recalls in North America, for select Ford F-650 and F-750 vehicles, and for select 2018 Ford Ecosport vehicles.
Ford is issuing a safety compliance recall for 151 2018 Ford F-650 and F-750 vehicles with hydraulic brake systems located in the United States for potential unintended vehicle movement.
In affected vehicles, the parking brake cable may not have adequate tension, which could result in reduced parking brake performance and unintended vehicle movement, increasing the risk of accident or injury.
Additionally, Ford is issuing a safety compliance recall for 273 2018 Ford EcoSport vehicles located only in U.S. federalized territories for incorrect brake fluid reservoir caps and owners’ manual kits.
In affected vehicles, European brake fluid reservoir caps and European owners’ manual kits were incorrectly installed, instead of the U.S. versions required by federal motor vehicle safety standards.
Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries associated with either of these issues.
