Ford (F) has issued a recall for nearly 115,000 SUVs because they may have reduced braking performance due to faulty rear brake linings.

The recall affects certain 2021 to 2022 Bronco Sport and Escape vehicles, which in some instances may require the driver to use more force on the brake pedal and extended distance to stop the SUVs, increasing the risk of a crash.

According to Ford, the issue stems from a manufacturing problem with the rear brake linings, which affects braking performance, forcing the recall.

The brake linings were supplied by Continental’s arm in Mexico – Continental Automotive Mexicana, according to Automotive News, as reported by Car And Driver.

The Bronco Sports were built from Jan. 27, 2021, to Nov. 11, 2021, and the Escapes have build dates of Dec. 14, 2020, to Oct. 26, 2021.

In addition, the SUVs are not in compliance with the requirements of the Federal Motor Safety Standards.

Ford said it is developing a remedy for the braking performance issue. Recall notices are expected to be mailed to vehicle owners by Jan. 10.

Questions about the recall can be directed to Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332.

According to Car And Driver, Ford hasn’t shipped any Bronco Sports or Escape SUVs from its Hermosillo, Mexico, or Louisville, Kentucky, production plants since Nov. 9.

Ford said it was not aware of any incidents, accidents or injuries related to the recall.

As of Monday at 1:21 p.m. EST, shares of Ford were trading at $19.32, up 18 cents, or 0.94%.
