Recall Alert: 2013-2014 Ford F-150

2014 Ford F150 recall
Vehicles Affected:
Approximately 225,000 2013-14 Ford F-150s equipped with the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 engine built at the Dearborn Truck Plant in Michigan from Aug. 1, 2013, through Aug. 22, 2014, and the Kansas City Assembly Plant in Missouri from Aug. 1, 2013, through Aug. 31, 2014

The Problem: The brake master cylinder can leak fluid that can move into the brake booster, affecting the ability of the front brakes to stop the vehicle and increasing the risk of a crash. Ford is aware of 10 incidents related to this issue.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the brake master cylinder at no cost to the customer and replace the brake booster if they find any leaks.

What Owners Should Do: The automaker did not immediately announce an owner-notification schedule. Owners can call Ford at 866-436-7332 for more info.

@Natethe"great": Ford only did so good on their safety test because their truck is the newest design.

And they even got caught with their pants down when they checked the super cabs (SCABS- the smallest cab configuration on a full size truck that can seat 5 people) and found out that Ford knew that they could have had a safer truck, but they elected to cheap out.

Either way, you're comparing about 5 years difference and technology and knowing how to deal with crash tests.

2018 Ram will prove the point.

The Ford better be good, it only cost you an arm and a leg to buy it!

The word is military spec, not military grade. But Ford could miss represent the truck however they want to the people that have never been in the military and don't know better.

We're still waiting on them to come up with the suspension that actually holds weight and rides good.

Because currently they don't do either.

2.7 Fords don't get great mileage either. You can look at many reviews to find that, or the fact that Edmunds compared their crew cab F150 2.7 liter four wheel drive truck to a 5.0 truck.

The only difference was a bed liner, and the 2.7 had a 3.73 gear and the 5.0 same configeration had 3.31 gears. It came down to a difference of 1 or 2% better gas mileage for the 2.7, and we all know if you put some weight on that 2.7 the gas mileage is going to suck worse.

Did I not say Ford legal team was earning their keep. There is a problem if there is an increase in braking effort. I'm sure measured stopping distances would have increased as evidenced by the poor guy who experienced those 3 crashes. But the legal team did their job and was able to strike a deal with just extending the warranty and notifying the customer. I'm sure the FORD customer is so full of gratitude that FORD has extended their warranty on this item that they will blindly purchase another one of these trouble laden Ford products.

That guy that had 3 accidents seems pretty evident that the problem may have not been the master cylinder unless he had one accident, refilled the master cylinder, had another one, refilled and had a 3rd. You should clearly see something is not making sense here.

Maybe his problem was the vacuum pump issue that your buddy had with his truck. Maybe if your buddy had to make an emergency stop with that condition, he be telling the same story as the guy with the 3 accidents.

The pump is a secondary system, primary is vacuum. You do understand what happens in any gasoline engine when you let off the gas right, forced induction or NA.

Yes but apparently Ford didn't.

Caught in house 10 incidents 0 deaths 0 injuries, Get it fixed right and fast unlike some other far more fatal recalls...

Maybe because they need to pay attention to the road. It has been confirmed that the low fluid warning light and chime goes off when the fluid goes to low.

Non of it is truth in this case, except 0 deaths, but I will let you go easy this time. Google it, to see the details for your own safety.

They all use the same master cylinder regardless of engine option. (Except trucks with hydroboost.)
Why are they only recalling the trucks with the 3.5 l engine?

How do the bestest trucks ever made manage to have so many recalls? Oh wait, these are different, they're military grade recalls. LOL!

RAM has nothing to do with that. It was between Ford and GM this year, but Ford is a clear winner so far.

@ HEMI V8, FCA recalling 400k Jeep Wranglers.
In the Wranglers' steering wheel, excessive accumulation of dust and dirt from open-air driving off-road could compromise the clockspring in the steering-wheel assembly and prevent the airbag from deploying in the event of a crash

RAM, who are you talking to? You are the worst at trailing off topic of anyone here, with the exception of Chuck Full O'crap, aka Johnny doe.

@ckreid92
I disagree with you. You are not in the position to judge me.

No need to take it personal. Are not RAM and HEMI V8 one and the same?

No, we are not the same person. We just drive the brand , we like the most. Like rest of you.

Who is Chuck Full O'crap? Only Chuck guy I've seen on here was a Ford clown and disappeared. Then two or three new Ford clown names pop up afterward.

Military Grade Brakes beat Professional Grade Ignition EVERY time.
