There's an increased risk of crashing!
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.

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

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.

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.
