The largest of two recalls affects nearly 1.3 million Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKX midsize cars from 2013 through 2018
Ford is recalling more than 1.5 million vehicles in two actions in the United States to repair leaky brake hoses and windshield wiper arms that can break.
The largest of two recalls affects nearly 1.3 million Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKX midsize cars from 2013 through 2018.
The company says in documents released by security agencies on Friday that front brake hoses can rupture and leak brake fluid. That would increase brake pedal travel and increase braking distance.

Dealers replace the hoses. Ford will be sending out notification letters to owners beginning April 17. You will receive a second letter once parts are available for repair.
Ford says it is aware of an accident with no mention of injuries from the issue. Owners who have problems should call their dealer, Ford said. Some parts are already available for repair. The company said only about 2 percent of vehicles will have brake hose leaks.
The second recall affects more than 222,000 2021 F-150 pickups. Wiper arms can break.
Vendors will replace weapons as needed. Owners will be notified beginning March 27th.
