Manufacturer: FORD MOTOR COMPANY Mfr's Report Date: MAY 06, 2010
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 10V202000 NHTSA Action Number: N/A
Component: PARKING BRAKE:DRIVELINE:HYDRAULIC:ACTUATOR Potential Number of Units Affected: 2,934 Summary:
 FORD IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2010 RANGER VEHICLES MANUFACTURED FROM JUNE 8, 2009 THROUGH FEBRUARY 2, 2010 EQUIPPED WITH MANUAL TRANSMISSION. IT IS POSSIBLE FOR THE PARKING BRAKE CABLE TO BECOME DISCONNECTED FROM THE RIGHT REAR ACTUATOR DURING COLD WEATHER. THIS MAY OCCUR WHEN THE PARKING BRAKE IS RELEASED IF WET PARKING BRAKE SHOES HAVE FROZEN IN THE APPLIED POSITION. IF THE RIGHT REAR PARKING BRAKE CABLE BECOMES DISCONNECTED, THE PEDAL WILL HAVE EXTENDED TRAVEL AND MAY NOT FULLY APPLY THE PARKING BRAKE. Consequence:
 A MANUAL TRANSMISSION VEHICLE PARKED IN NEUTRAL WITHOUT A FULLY APPLIED PARKING BRAKE MAY HAVE UNINTENDED MOVEMENT WHICH MAY CAUSE A CRASH. Remedy:
 DEALERS WILL INSTALL A REVISED RIGHT REAR PARKING BRAKE ACTUATOR TO PREVENT CABLE DISCONNECTION.

Brakes are brakes. And no brakes are no brakes. If you've got one of these potential Ford Ranger lemon trucks, be careful out there. If Ford or your dealer will not, or can not, take care of you, call us. Getting rid of lemon trucks, and getting your money back or a new one, that's what we do. Every day. Since 1978.

Because the road's too long to drive it in a lemon truck.
