Ford Recalls 2018 Escape, Lincoln MKC SUVs for Brake Issues

A loss of brake fluid can greatly compromise stopping power

Not every recall is a big one, but that doesn’t make tiny recalls any less important for the folks who are driving vehicles affected by ’em.

Ford has issued a small recall for just 92 examples of the 2018 Ford Escape and 2018 Lincoln MKC SUVs. The affected vehicles were assembled at the Louisville Assembly Plant between Oct. 29 and 30 of last year. 88 of these vehicles are in US territories, while the remaining four are up yonder Canada way.

The issue stems from the brake jounce hoses, which are part of the braking system. In the affected vehicles, these hoses might come into contact with other parts, which can create premature wear and potentially spring a brake fluid leak.
