Pickup Trucks: 2018 Ford F-650, F-750: Recall Alert

By Patrick Masterson

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 1,500 model-year 2018 Ford F-650 and F-750 trucks with hydraulic brake systems built at the Ohio Assembly Plant between Jan. 26 and March 13, 2018

The Problem: Some primary and/or secondary brake circuit hose assemblies located between the master cylinder and hydraulic control unit may not have the specified anti-corrosion plating on the metal ferrules that attach a flexible braided steel hose to metal tubes, which can lead to premature corrosion of the brake hose ferrules, brake fluid leakage and reduced brake function, increasing the risk of a crash.

Ford said it is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to the issue.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the brake hose assembly with parts that contain properly plated ferrules for free.

What Owners Should Do: Ford did not immediately announce an owner-notification schedule. Owners can call the automaker at 866-436-7332, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
