2016 Brake Hydraulic Control Unit Recall

Recommended Posts

Ford will replace the brake hydraulic control unit on 600 2016 Transit Connect vans. The affected vehicles, all built at the Blue Oval's Valencia, Spain, factory between February 22 and April 9, 2016, could suddenly lose pump performance from the brake hydraulic control unit. With a loss of pump performance, drivers would be without just about every electronic nanny – "electronic stability control and related systems including roll stability control, anti-lock braking system, emergency brake assist, curve control, trailer sway control, traction control and hill start assist performance" could all fail without warning, Ford says.

The company hasn't received any reports of deaths or injuries relating to the recalls. Ford will notify owners of the affected vehicles and ask them to report to their local dealer for free repairs.
