Ford is conducting two separate recalls in the United States, each of which will affect more than one and a half million vehicles, in order to replace brake hoses that leak and windshield wiper arms that can break. These replacements are being done in order to address potential safety hazards. Recalls like this are being carried out so that defective automobiles can be repaired and made roadworthy again.
It is going to be the responsibility of the dealers to replace the hoses. On April 17th, Ford will start issuing notice letters to car owners who have registered their vehicles with the company. When the necessary components for the repair are prepared to be sent out, a second letter to those individuals will be sent out to them.
The first of two recalls affects more than 1.3 million Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKX midsize sedans that were produced between 2013 and 2018. Both of these models were manufactured between 2013 and 2018. The scope of this recall is significantly more extensive than that of the prior one.
In records that were released into the public domain on Friday by safety regulators, the corporation admitted that the front brake lines had the potential to fail and leak braking fluid. This information was included in the documents. The company has distributed these materials to the general public. As a consequence of this, the brake pedal would have to travel further in order to bring the car to a stop, which would lead to increased stopping distances.
