Ford Issues Recalls For Faulty Rearview Camera, Brake Pedal Bracket

Hundreds of thousands of Ford vehicles affected by safety compliance recall and two safety recalls


  • Rearview camera display can glitch intermittently.

  • On Mustangs, the brake pedal bracket can break.

  • Super-Duty trucks can have a faulty wheel-end yoke.


Not all recalls are equal but even so, all need to be addressed especially when there are safety issues. In Ford’s case, they’ve just announced a trio of recalls involving hundreds of thousands of their vehicles sold in the US, Canada, and Mexico.

The first is a safety compliance issue that involves intermittent bugs with the rearview camera. Ford is not aware of any reports of accident or injury related to this condition however 620,246 vehicles in the U.S., 76,566 in Canada, and 4,302 in Mexico are affected:

  • 2020 Ford Explorer
  • 2020 Ford F-150
  • 2020 Ford Mustang
  • 2020 Ford Transit
  • 2020 Ford Super Duty
  • 2020 Ford Expedition
  • 2020 Ford Escape and Lincoln Corsair
  • 2020 Ford Ranger
  • 2020 Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX and Nautilus

Dealers will replace the rearview camera. Official notification to dealers and customers will begin Nov. 7. The Ford reference number for this recall is 20C19.

2020 Mustang Shelby GT350 – Ford

The first safety recall affects 38,005 2020 Ford Mustangs in the U.S., 2,251 in Canada, and 322 in Mexico. The issue stems from a brake pedal bracket that could fracture during sudden stopping. So far, no incidents have been reported and, in this case, dealers will replace the bracket.

The second safety recall involves various 2019 Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty trucks. Some are equipped with a front axle that may contain a wheel end yoke that was not properly welded to the axle tube end. The bad weld may negatively affect steering impacting vehicle control however no accidents have been reported. If the weld is inaccurate, Ford will replace the axle assembly on up to 9,628 vehicles in the U.S. and 961 in Canada.
