2012 Ford F-150Ford says it will recall roughly 271,000 F-150 pickup trucks in North America from 2013 and 2014 model years equipped with 3.5-liter engines over concerns a fluid leak could reduce braking power.

Ford says brake fluid can leak from the master cylinder, reducing the stopping ability of the front brakes. Nine crashes with no injuries, have been reported according to the notice.

Dealers will replace the master cylinder and will also replace the brake booster if leaks are found from the master cylinder.
