Top-selling Ford vehicles are being recalled in the U.S. due to a fluid leak believed to reduce braking power. There are about 271,000 F-150 pickup trucks involved in the recall. Specific models in North America include 2013 and 2014 and have a 3.5-liter V6 engine. The Ford company claims the issue involves potential brake fluid leakage from the master cylinder which could potentially reduce the ability of the front brakes to stop the vehicle. There have been nine reported crashes by the company. However, Ford claims all resulted without injury. There has been one case of injury during an interaction with the brakes that has been unspecified. Ford dealers will offer consumers a replacement of the brake master cylinder for free as well as a replacement of the brake booster if shows damage.
