Ford Recall Canada For Brake Issues Affects More Than 62,000 Vehicles

Check your car! The Ford recall in Canada affects more than 62,000 vehicles sold across the country. There's an issue with a part in the brake system that could increase the risk of a crash.

Ford has issued a safety recall for some 2015-2018 Ford Edge and 2016-2018 Lincoln MKX vehicles that were built and sold in Canada.

There are front brake jounce hoses that could rupture. If that happens, it will cause a brake fluid leak.

That could lead to a driver experiencing an increase in brake pedal travel which, combined with a reduction in the rate of acceleration, could increase the risk of a crash.

62,876 vehicles are affected in Canada.

There's the 2015-2018 Ford Edge cars built at the Oakville Assembly Plant from June 25, 2014 to December 21, 2017.

2016-2018 Lincoln MKX cars that were built at the same place from November 11, 2014 to December 21, 2017 are also affected.

Ford has an online feature where you can check if your car is part of the recall. 

You enter your 17-digit VIN into the search bar and any safety issues will be shown.

Then you can schedule a service appointment for repairs if need be.

Dealers will replace the affected hoses with new ones that are made with a revised material.

Currently, Ford hasn't been made aware of any accidents or injuries related to this issue.

Another recall is in place for some 2020 Lincoln Corsair vehicles.

There might not be enough clearance between the left and right rear coil springs and the toe link bracket.

That could lead to the spring fracturing and detaching from the vehicle which could be a road hazard for other drivers.

There are 491 affected vehicles in Canada for this recall that were built at the Louisville Assembly Plant from January 7 to October 21, 2019.

In January, over 400,000 Toyota vehicles in Canada were affected by a recall because of faulty airbags.
