Ford recalls 270K+ trucks for brake issue

Ford Motor Company is recalling more than 270,000 trucks due to a brake issue.

The automaker says they want to replace brake master cylinders in certain 2013-2014 F-150 vehicles.

Ford says, in some vehicles, brake fluid could leak from the cylinder into the brake booster, increasing the risk of a crash. 

The vehicles affected were build at the Dearborn Truck Plant and Kansas City Assembly Plant in August of 2013 through August of 2014. 

Nine accidents have been reported that could possibly be related. No injuries reported. 

Dealers will replace the cylinders free of charge.
