Ford Brake Recall: 2010 Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan
Specific details are not available at this point but a report by leftlanenews.com suggests that some Ford and Mercury drivers informed the US-based manufacturer that these particular models have presented a "different brake feel" which would obviously scare the hell of the owners.
It appears that Ford was aware of the issue and released a statement saying that it does not affect the braking abilities and the vehicle is still able to come to a halt if this occurs.
"The software threshold to transition from regenerative brakes to conventional brakes can cause the system to transition to conventional brakes unnecessarily," Ford said in a statement. "The driver may initially perceive the condition as loss of brakes... the vehicle has full braking capability. When this occurs, our system maintains full conventional brakes and full ABS function."
Ford has already started a campaign to inform all affected owners of Fusion and Mercury hybrids manufacturing before October 17, 2009.
"The software upgrade will reduce unnecessary occurrences of the vehicle switching from regenerative braking to conventional hydraulic brakes. Customers with affected vehicles will receive a notice in the mail. We are asking owners of affected vehicles to have vehicle software reprogrammed at dealers at no charge."
