Ford Announces Recall for 300 TC's built this Spring

Recommended Posts

Vehicles Affected: Nearly 370 model-year 2014 Ford Transit Connect vans manufactured between March 1, 2014, and May 15, 2014

The Problem: The affected vehicles may have a brake reservoir cap that does not have the required text advising owners which brake fluid the vehicle uses. This could result in someone adding the wrong brake fluid, causing damage to the brake system seals and, in turn, brake fluid leaks; this could lengthen stopping distances and increase the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Ford notified owners on July 14, and dealers will replace the brake reservoir cap with the correct one for free.

What Owners Should Do: Owners can call Ford at 800-392-3673, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.

I wish every recall would be this minor and hope won't be any more after this.

From what I've read, the vehicles involved were all shipped to Puerto Rico:

"The next recall is strictly on paper. Ford is recalling 368 Ford Transit Connect vehicles from the 2014 model year that are located in Puerto Rico because they have the European brake reservoir cap label, instead of the mandated US version. Dealers will replace the decal on the affected models."
