Ford has today announced the recall of its BF Mark III and FG Falcon E-Gas sedan, wagon and utility variants for a potential issue with the car’s braking system.
The recall affects only those vehicles fitted with Ford’s E-Gas engine (dedicated factory LPG system) built between October 20, 2008 and September 4, 2009 inclusive (9,072 vehicles).
The recall is necessary because under certain conditions, the vacuum supply from the LPG engine to the brake booster may develop a vacuum leak at the check valve. This could result in reduced power assistance to the vehicle’s service brakes.
Owners of affected vehicles will be contacted by mail. If you have purchased a used vehicle fitting this description, or have changed your address details since purchasing the car new, you may wish to contact Ford Australia’s customer service centre on 13 FORD (13 36 73).
