(WWJ) – Ford has issued yet another recall, this time impacting more than one and a half million vehicles.

The Dearborn automaker is recalling 1.3 million Ford Focus and Lincoln MKZ sedans made between 2013-18, due to a problem with a brake fluid hose.

The company says the front brake hose can rupture over time, which can cause the braking system to lose pressure.

WWJ Auto Beat Reporter Jeff Gilbert says while the issue can “seriously impact braking ability,” only one crash has been related to the problem.

The other recall involves 280,000 2021 F-150 pickups. They have a windshield wiper arm that can come off.

Ford has 576 reports of wiper failures in those pickups. No word if there have been any crashes.

So far this year Ford has had 12 recalls, the most of any carmaker, according to Gilbert.

Anyone who owns one of the vehicles under recall should receive a notice via mail by mid-April, according to a report from The Drive.
