U.S. officials are investigating whether a 2020 Ford Motor’s recall for vehicles with front brake hoses rupturing prematurely is adequate, the agency said last week.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is starting a recall query into 1.7 million U.S. Ford 2013-2018 model year Fusion and Lincoln MKZ cars after getting 50 complaints alleging front brake hose failures.

The automaker recalled 488,000 Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX vehicles in 2020 in the United States over brake hose failures.

The automaker said it would work with NHTSA’s investigation.

NHTSA said many complaints noted brake hoses are rupturing, leaking brake fluid and happening with little or no warning. The safety agency one crash allegedly took place as a result of a failed brake hose.
