the problem: european brake fluid reservoir caps and european owners' manual kits were installed instead of the u.s. versions required by federal motor vehicle safety standards, which could lead to a crash.
ford said it is not aware of any related accident or injuries.
the fix: dealers will replace the brake fluid reservoir cap and owners' manual kit with the versions required by federal motor vehicle safety standards for free.
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.
