Ford must recall 1,280,726 vehicles in the United States over a brake jounce hose that may fail prematurely due to a design flaw. The campaign will cover certain 2013–2018 Ford Fusions and Lincoln MKZs, Report informs, citing foreign media sources.
In the aftermath of an earlier recall that affected the 2015-2018 Ford Edge and the 2016 Lincoln MKX, Ford discovered that the same issue that had hampered the braking performance of those SUVs could also affect the above-mentioned sedans, and has now taken action.
This problem does not affect Fusion and MKZ hybrids, and the bad hose was used between February 3, 2012, and July 19, 2017. After that, a new material was introduced, and Ford’s investigation suggests that it is lasting longer.
