Vehicles Affected: Approximately 270 model-year 2018 Ford EcoSport SUVs
The Problem: European brake fluid reservoir caps and European owners' manual kits were installed instead of the U.S. versions required by federal motor vehicle safety standards, which could lead to a crash.
Ford said it is not aware of any related accident or injuries.
The Fix: Dealers will replace the brake fluid reservoir cap and owners' manual kit with the versions required by federal motor vehicle safety standards for free.
What Owners Should Do: Ford did not immediately announce an owner-notification schedule. 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.
