Recall Alert: 2015 Ford Transit, Transit Cargo Van

2015FordTransitRecall

Vehicles Affected: Nearly 2,000 model-year 2015 Ford Transit and Transit cargo vans in two separate actions.

The Problem: According to The Detroit News, the Transit recall includes about 1,300 vans and is due to a potential brake fluid leak at the joint between the rear brake hose and brake caliper. If there's a leak, drivers will eventually see the red brake warning lamp and a "Brake Fluid Level Low — Service Now" message in the instrument cluster. Drivers may also notice a longer pedal travel and extended stopping distances. Ford is recalling an additional 600 Transit cargo vans due to a potential issue with windowless sliding doors. The doors were assembled without epoxy reinforcement, making them more likely to come unlatched during side-impact crashes, The Detroit News also reported. Ford said it is aware of no injuries as a result of either problem.

The Fix: Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace sealing washers in Transits and install a reinforcement plate into the door in Transit cargo vans. The automaker has not yet announced a notification schedule for either action.

What Owners Should Do: Owners can call ford at 866-436-7332 for more info.
