25: Faulty Battery Lines Causing Brake Malfunctions
The recalls have been rampant for both major American automakers, but last year, Ford had a rather serious one. The 2019-2020 F-150 could potentially have a loose battery line which would in turn cause the brakes to malfunction. The brake malfunction has not been the first to effect Ford vehicles and this understandably causes doubt in the minds of consumers. The safety of a new vehicle should not be the first concern that comes to mind. You should be able to trust a brand that built the car beneath your feet.
The Ford brake line recall was something that alarmed the automotive industry. Ford already had a shaky history with the Pinto and the recent Explorer debacle which cost the company millions of dollars. In the end, the battery lines need to be more thoroughly tested before the vehicle ever leaves the production area.
