DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) — Ford is recalling more than 600,000 midsize sedans in the U.S. to fix a problem with the brakes that can increase stopping distance and possibly cause a crash.
The recall covers certain 2006 through 2010 Ford Fusion, Mercury Milan and Lincoln MKZ cars. Ford says a valve inside the hydraulic brake control unit can stick open, resulting in extended brake pedal travel. The company says there have been 15 reports of crashes related to the problem.

Owners will be notified starting the week of Jan. 13.MORE NEWS: Suffolk Police: Man Killed In Hit-And-Run On Long Island Expressway In Brentwood
