Ford is recalling about 200,000 cars due to a problem with their brake lights.
The recall covers certain 2014 and 2015 Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ midsize cars, and some 2015 Mustangs. There’s a problem that could stop the brake lights from turning off.
All of the vehicles were sold or registered in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia and Hawaii.
Ford says high temperatures and humidity can disintegrate a rubber brake pedal part, keeping the brake lights on. It also lets drivers with automatic transmissions shift out of park without having a foot on the brake. Affected owners will be notified by mail in March.
