Ford Motor Company is recalling 195,864 model year 2016-2017 Ford Expeditions, Lincoln Navigators, and model year 2016-2018 F-150s with 3.5L Ecoboost engines.
The brake master cylinder may allow brake fluid to leak from the front wheel circuit into the brake booster.
A loss of brake fluid may result in a change in brake pedal travel, increased pedal effort, and reduced front brake function, requiring greater effort and distance to stop the vehicle. These conditions can increase the risk of a crash.
What to do
Dealers will replace the brake master cylinder. If the master cylinder is leaking, the brake booster will also be replaced. Repairs will be performed free of charge.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on April 25, 2022.
Owners may contact Ford customer service at (866) 436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 22S11.
