has anyone else seen the recall in todays paper?

it is for 2002-2007 models (i think, didn't read the whole thing cause it doens't apply to me :P) about the rear brakes failing.

might want to get it checked out if you've got one of them!

its not a recall as such, its a campaign.

ford have tested vehicles and they wills till work if something goes wrong. you dont need to rush your car in fearing death due to failed brakes.

next time you are getting work or a service is fine, just double check that they will check it out.

whichever newspaper you are reading it is about a month behind the times.

it is a durabiliy issue with ba/f sedans. its to do with the irs so utes and wagons not affected.

if your car is having the correct servicing etc it will be rectified next service you have at a dealer.
You can request it be done on its own but i know that the parts arent in wa to do it yet. I dunno about anywhere else.
Also if your car is being serviced correctly a brake line rubbing thru and splitting should be picked up before it becomes an issue.
