Ford Recalls 271,000 F-150 Pickups for Brake Issues
Ford Motors has recently recalled approximately 271,000 F-150 pickup trucks due to brake fluid leakage which can lead to a reduction in braking power.
About the Vehicle Recall

Dealers will replace the brake master cylinder for free and will also replace the brake booster if they find leaks from the master cylinder.
Ford will be notifying customers the week of July 11, and is working with their suppliers.
