Big recall on Ford F-150 pickup trucks. Brake fluid could leak

June 11, 2020

By James Raia
Even the country’s perennially best-selling vehicle sometimes has problems. In this instance, it’s Ford F-150 pickup trucks.

Nearly 30000 used Ford F-150 pickup trucks are being recall for braking issues

About 350,000 Ford F-150 trucks in North America, including 292,311 vehicles in the United States, are being recalled for a faulty brake master cylinder, Ford announced.

The pickup trucks, from model years 2014-2017, are being recalled  because the brake master cylinder can leak brake fluid into the brake booster and ultimately reduce braking power to the front wheels. Drivers may feel more pedal travel that requires more force to press the brake. The loss of power could also trigger an audible chime, a message alert, or a red brake warning light in the instrument cluster.

The trucks affected include 2015 through 2017 F-150 pickups built in Dearborn, Michigan, between October 1, 2014, and August 1, 2016; and 2014 through 2017 models built in Kansas City from September 1, 2014, to August 1, 2016.

The recall also includes about 50,000 additional F-150 pickups in Canada and Mexico.

All of the problematic trucks are F-150s with 3.5-liter EcoBoost engines.

Ford reported seven low-speed crashes and two injuries have occurred because of the braking issue.

Dealers will replace the master cylinder and the leaking brake booster free of charge. The recall code is 20S31. Owners can visit Ford’s recall site or contact Ford customer service at 866-436-7332. Ford F-150 owners can also check the NHTSA recalls website for further details.
