Vehicles Affected: Approximately 150 model-year 2018 Ford F-650 and F-750 medium-duty work trucks
The Problem: The parking brake cable may not have adequate tension, which could result in reduced parking brake performance and unintended vehicle movement, increasing the risk of accident or injury.
Ford said it is not aware of any accidents or injuries associated with the issue.
The Fix: Dealers will adjust the parking brake cable to the proper tension for free. When operating a vehicle prior to repair, customers should make sure the transmission is secured in Park (if equipped) or the wheels are chocked before leaving the vehicle unattended.
What Owners Should Do: Ford did not immediately announce an owner-notification schedule. Owners can call the automaker at 866-436-7332, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
