By Tom Torbjornsen

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 1,900 model-year 2016 Ford Transit Connect vans manufactured between Feb. 22 and June 16, 2016

The Problem: The brake hydraulic control unit pump may be contaminated with metallic debris. If the brake HCU pump is contaminated, the performance of the electronic stability control and related brake systems may degrade, increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the brake HCU pump for free.

What Owners Should Do: The recall is expected to begin on Aug. 15. Owners can call the automaker at 800-392-3673, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to for more info.

Good grief does Ford have a weekly recall all the time?

Nope. They ain't caught up with fiat and gm just yet.

How long has brakes been available on vehicles? Why does FORD continue to have these brake issues.

About as long as ignition switches have been on cars. That answer your question???

Import junk!

The Pro Ford bias of this site is sickening...

Hey " Done" Is this the ignition re call your referring to?
Now when is ford going to learn how to build a brake system?

Key started appears to of been awhile after breaks, done.

Auto correct this sucker

Has anyone lost their lives from this current brake issue?? I think not. Ignition problems for gm is another story!

This seems to be a QC issue by a supplier.

I wonder if the person machining the parts or cleaning to parts was fired?

now the question is, we all know Ford did not build the HCU. They are obviously built by an outside vendor and more likely than not, supply other manufacturers like GM HCU's. So how far did the contamination go.

Has anyone seen the thin paint on the Ford trucks for 15 and 16. Under doors rockers why is it so thin?

Cheap China vendor indeed.
