The Problem: A software error may cause a towed trailer equipped with an electric or electric over hydraulic brake system to not brake properly, which could result in extended stopping distance and increase the risk of a crash.

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 681,000 model-year 2014-2015 Chevrolet Equinoxes and GMC Terrains are being recalled.

The Problem: The engine oil separator housing may crack and develop an oil leak. In the presence of an ignition source such as hot engine or exhaust components, this can lead to an increased risk of fire.
The Fix: Dealers will inspect the oil separator for damage or leaks and replace the separator and seals for free, as necessary. Ford will begin notifying owners April 18.
2010-2017 GMC Terrains
Vehicles Affected: More than 740,500 GMC Terrain compact SUVs are being recalled.
The Problem: The headlight housings cause a distracting reflection, which may shine an excessively bright light above the vehicle and outside of the driver’s view. This can cause glare for other drivers, reducing their visibility and increasing the risk of a crash.
The Fix: A remedy is currently under development. Owners will be notified April 23.
2016-2018 Ford/Lincoln Vehicles
Vehicles Affected: Approximately 195,900 Ford vehicles are being recalled, including model-year 2016-2017 Expeditions, 2016-2018 F-150s and 2016-2017 Navigators – all equipped with EcoBoost 3.5-liter V-6 engines.
The Problem: The brake master cylinder may allow brake fluid to leak from the front wheel circuit into the brake booster. Such a loss of brake fluid may cause a change in brake pedal travel, pedal effort and front-brake function, therefore requiring greater effort and distance to stop the vehicle. All conditions can increase the risk of a crash.
The Fix: Dealers will replace the brake master cylinder. If the master cylinder is leaking, then the brake booster also will be replaced. All repairs will be completed for free. Ford will begin notifying owners April 25.
