Ford Motor Company is recalling about 75,000 model year 2015-18 Ford Edges and model year 2016-18 Lincoln MKXs.
The front brake jounce hoses could rupture causing a progressive brake fluid leak.
If the brake fluid reservoir is depleted below a certain level, the brake fluid warning indicator light will illuminate. The driver may experience an increase in brake pedal travel, together with a reduction in the rate of deceleration, increasing the risk of a crash.
Ford is not aware of any reports of accidents or injuries.
What to do
Ford will notify owners and dealers will replace the front brake jounce hoses with new hoses that have a revised braid material.
Owners may contact Ford customer service at (866) 436-7332. Ford's reference number for this recall is 20S42.
