Recall Alert: 2014 Ford Transit Connect

2014FordTransitConnectRecall

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.

When a handicapped person is crossing a four lane road (in the crosswalks at the corner) and someone turns right on red as soon as that person clears HALF the crosswalk. It is dangerous but I see it happen often. I too am handicapped and have a scooter. But my husband will not let me cross that road, it's too dangerous!
