2016 Ford Transit Connect Recalled for Brake Problem

DEARBORN, Michigan — Ford is recalling 608 2016 Ford Transit Connect vans in North America because of a brake problem, the company said on Wednesday.

"It is possible reduced pump performance of the brake hydraulic control unit may decrease electronic stability control and related systems, including roll-stability control, antilock braking system, emergency-brake assist, curve control, trailer-sway control, traction control and hill-start assist performance without warning, increasing the risk of a crash," Ford said in a statement.

There are no injuries or accidents linked to the recall.

The affected 2016 Transit Connect vans were built from February 22, 2016 through April 9, 2016 at Valencia Assembly Plant.

Ford dealers will replace the brake hydraulic control unit. The recall is expected to begin on August 15. Owners can contact Ford customer service at 1-800-392-3673.

No information about this recall has been posted on the website of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which oversees vehicle safety in the U.S.

Edmunds says: Ford dealers are waiting for parts in this recall. It's best to stay in touch with your dealer for the latest information if you own one of these vehicles.
