Ford Motor Company Issues One Safety Recall and One Safety Compliance Recall in Canada

DEARBORN, Mich., May 25, 2016 – Ford Motor Company is issuing one safety recall and one safety compliance recall in Canada. Details are as follows:

Ford issues safety recall for certain 2013-2014 Ford F-150 vehicles in Canada to replace their brake master cylinders.

Ford is issuing a safety recall for approximately 44,000 2013-2014 Ford F-150 vehicles to replace brake master cylinders. In some vehicles, it is possible brake effectiveness could be reduced due to brake fluid leaking from the brake master cylinder into the brake booster, increasing the risk of a crash. The brake fluid leak affects brakes to the front wheels only and does not affect rear wheel braking.

Ford is aware of allegations of nine accidents with no injuries, and one alleged injury involving interaction with the vehicle’s brakes but not associated with an accident.

Affected vehicles include certain 2013-2014 Ford F-150 vehicles equipped with 3.5-litre GTDI engines built at Dearborn Truck Plant, Aug. 1, 2013 through Aug. 22, 2014; and Kansas City Assembly Plant, Aug. 1, 2013 through Aug. 31, 2014. There are 43,682 vehicles affected in Canada.

Dealers will replace the brake master cylinder at no cost to the customer. Additionally, dealers will replace the brake booster if they find leaks from the brake master cylinder.
