Braking News

The Ford Ecosport is being recalled!
For those of you not familiar with this vehicle, it's an American car that always gets me briefly excited before I realise it doesn't say "Escort".
Actually, it's an SUV and therefore very un-exciting.
Autoguide have the story of the recall here.
Apparently, around 273 of these SUVs have been supplied with European User Manuals and fitted with European brake fluid reservoir caps!
Oh no!  That's illegal apparently.
The good news is that, "Ford dealers will replace the brake fluid reservoir cap and owners’ manual kit with the proper US versions free of charge"
Why not just post them out?
What's the worst that can happen?  Some Americans get confused between US and Imperial Gallons?
