2016-2017 Ford Expedition Recalled Over Brake Master Cylinder Issue

Ford Motor Company is recalling select 2016-2017 Ford Expedition models equipped with Ford’s 3.5L EcoBoost V6 due to a brake master cylinder issue.

The defect: in affected vehicles, a seal in the rear of the brake master cylinder may become compromised, allowing brake fluid to leak into the brake booster.

The hazards: a leaking brake booster can reduce brake function in the front wheels, which can extend stopping distance, increasing the risk of a crash.

Ford is not aware of any reports of accidents or injuries related to this condition.

Components: brake master cylinder.

Affected vehicles: select 2016-2017 Ford Expedition models built at the Ford Kentucky Truck Plant between July 20th, 2015, and January 31st, 2017.

Number of vehicles affected: 90,055

The fix: dealers will replace the brake master cylinder. If the master cylinder is leaking, the brake booster will also be replaced, free of charge.

Owners should: wait for communications from Ford, which will begin on April 25th, 2022. The Ford reference number for this recall is 22S11.

    I am one of the most unfortunate owners of a 2017 Ford Expedition who’s brakes did fail completely as I coasted into a parking lot. For over 8 weeks now, my car has been sitting at Riverside Ford in Macon, GA waiting on the proper parts to fix this brake malfunction safety recall problem. I have contacted my recall advisor to ask for a loaner car but to no avail. I’m told to go rent a car (on my dime) and then later I can attempt to get only a 60% refund.
    I am single, and must ask friends for rides constantly. I want to trade this car in now but don’t know what value I would get with no functioning brakes.
    This is totally unacceptable!!

    I was never notified of this recall until went in for an oil change last week. VERY disappointed in Ford.

    I found out about the master cylinder recall the evening of the same day my brakes failed leading to my car accident. I need to know what Ford plans to do to pay for repairs and deductibles causes by the failed master cylinder.
