Ford has issued a recall for nearly half a million mid-size SUV’s over a brake issue.

The affected models include the 2015 to 2018 Ford Edge and 2016 to 2018 Lincoln MKX.

The issue is with a brake jounce hose that Ford says can rupter and lead to brake fluid leaking, decreasing their effectiveness. A dealer can replace the hose with one made from different materials.

Are you an SUV driver? What advantages do they have over smaller models? What about over a truck?
