DEARBORN, Mich. – Ford Motor Company is issuing three safety recalls for North America, one of which is limited to the Canadian market.
The safety recall in Canada covers select 2006-10 Ford Fusion, 2006-10 Mercury Milan and 2006-10 Lincoln MKZ vehicles.
In some affected vehicles, a normally closed valve inside the hydraulic control unit may stick open, which could result in extended brake pedal travel, potentially increasing the risk of a crash.
Ford is aware of one accident report related to this condition. This action affects 54,292 vehicles in Canada. Affected vehicles were built at Hermosillo (Mexico) Assembly Plant, Feb. 22, 2006, to July 15, 2009.
Dealers will inspect the hydraulic control unit for signs of stuck or slow-responding valves and replace the unit if necessary. The system will be pressure-flushed with DOT 4 brake fluid and the DOT 3 reservoir cap will be replaced with a new DOT 4 cap. The Ford reference number for this recall is 20S14.
The other two North American recalls cover:
1. select 2014-15 Ford Fiesta, 2014-16 Ford Fusion and 2014-16 Lincoln MKZ vehicles which might have faulty door latches which could unlatch while the vehicle is in motion. Some 248, 912 vehicles in the United States and 19,431 in Mexico and four in Canada are affected by this recall.
2. select 2021 Ford E-Series stripped chassis and cutaway vehicles which may have frame-mounted wire harnesses that could, over time, chafe on the frame and damage the wire harness. This action affects 2,871 vehicles in the U.S. and 760 in Canada.
