Ford Recalls About 3,000 Cargo Vans and Luxury SUVs

Ford Motor Co. is recalling about 3,000 cargo vans and luxury SUVs in North America in three separate actions to address potential brake hose, sliding door and windshield issues, the No. 2 U.S. automaker said Friday. Ford is recalling 1,319 Transit cargo vans from model year 2015 for potential brake fluid leak at the joint between the rear brake hose and brake caliper. Any leak could lead to extended stopping distances resulting in an accident. The company said there have been no injuries linked to the issue, but one low-speed accident occurred while vehicles were being moved at the assembly plant. Ford also is recalling 610 of the 2015 Transit cargo vans because the windowless sliding doors were assembled without an epoxy reinforcement that could increase the possibility of the doors becoming unlatched during side impacts. No accidents or injuries have been reported related to this issue. And it is recalling 1,274 Lincoln MKC SUVs from model year 2015 because there may be bubbles or other defects in the windshields that could affect driver visibility, Ford said.
