2014-2017 Ford F-150 Brake Fluid Leak: Recall Alert


Manufacturer image

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 292,000 model-year 2014-17 Ford F-150 pickup trucks equipped with the EcoBoost 3.5-liter engine

The Problem: The brake master cylinder may leak brake fluid into the brake booster, which may result in a change in brake pedal travel and feel, increased pedal effort and reduced front brake function, possibly requiring greater effort and distance to stop the truck, increasing the risk of a crash.

Ford said it is aware of seven low-speed/low-impact accident allegations and two injuries associated with the issue.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the brake master cylinder and inspect the brake booster, replacing it, as necessary, for free.

What Owners Should Do:Ford will begin notifying owners June 29. Owners can call the automaker at 866-436-7332, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
