Additional information:

Among the 75 (seventy five) recalls the NHTSA announced this month comes news of the following:

Logo - Ford Motor CompanyFord Motor Company (“Ford”), a Dearborn, Michigan establishment, has recalled an estimated 600,166 model year 2006-2010 Ford Fusion, Mercury Milan, Lincoln Zephyr and MKZ vehicles marketed, sold and delivered in the United States.

NHTSA Safety Notification 19V878000 reports that the valves within the ABS Hydraulic Control Units (“HCU”) may react with brake fluids containing specific corrosion preventative additives. This reaction may cause the valves to not close properly.

According to the NHTSA, if the valves do not properly close, additional brake pedal travel may be required to stop the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.

Ford will notify registered owners, and dealers will flush the brake system with DOT 4 fluid and install a new brake fluid reservoir cap. In addition, the HCU will be tested to detect a possible stuck valve condition, replacing the HCU as necessary. All services will be performed free of charge.

Owners will be notified of the safety risk with an interim letter on January 13, 2020. A second notice will be sent once parts are available, expected to be late in the first quarter of 2020. Owners may contact Ford Customer Service toll-free at 1-866-436-7332 during normal business hours, Monday to Friday, Eastern Standard Time (“EST”). Ford’s designation for this recall is 19S54.
