In recent months, multiple reports of braking system issues have arisen from those who own or lease a 2023 Ford F-150 Supercrew truck. Customers impacted by these concerning braking system malfunctions have described incidents in which the parking brake will randomly engage while the truck is in motion. Once the parking brake engages, the only way the driver can turn it off is to do so manually. Many drivers have expressed their safety concerns regarding this defect, as it can increase the likelihood of a collision when it occurs on busy roads. The manufacturer has issued six distinct auto safety recall campaigns affecting this make and model, one of which addresses parking brake malfunctions. Unfortunately, some customers have yet to receive lasting fixes to these troublesome safety issues.
One owner of a 2023 Ford F-150 Super Crew reported that they were traveling at a slow speed of approximately 15 miles per hour. Suddenly, the emergency brake activated without warning and jerked the vehicle to a stop in a violent manner. Another 2023 Ford F-150 Supercrew driver described a similar incident that nearly resulted in an auto accident. Unfortunately, some Ford customers have realized that their vehicles are not covered under the safety recall campaign, even though they continue to experience these parking brake malfunctions.
