2018 Ford Endura recalled due to brake fluid leak
The Ford Endura SUV’s brake lines could leak brake fluid, increasing the risk of drivers losing stopping power.
Ford Australia has recalled 1811 examples of its 2018 Endura SUV, after discovering the since-departed model’s brake hoses could leak brake fluid.
The recall notice, lodged with the Department of Infrastructure, says: “Due to a manufacturing defect, brake fluid may leak from the front brake flexible hoses. This could cause the brake fluid warning light to illuminate and may result in reduced braking efficiency.
“Reduced brake efficiency could increase the risk of an accident and injury or death to vehicle occupants or other road users.

Ford Australia has advised it will contact affected owners requesting that owners make an appointment at their preferred Ford Authorised Dealership for inspection and repair, free of charge.
