    Brakes failed, recall?

    I've had a problem with my brakes going out wile driving, not completely but enough to be a serious issue, is there a master cylinder recall or similar? I had the dealer run the vin and nothing comes up besides a radio recall. I should mention that when i do lose the brakes, I turn the vehicle off and withing a 20 minute wait period, everything is back to normal.

    Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2013-2014 F-150 vehicles manufactured August 1, 2013, to August 31, 2014 equipped with 3.5L engines. The master cylinder rear cup seal may roll, resulting in brake fluid leakage from the primary reservoir into the brake booster.

    I had the brakes completely fail on my 2011 on Saturday due to the same problem that the '13s were recalled for. Ford told me I was on my own. Fortunately, the master cylinder failed when I was at a stop because just across the intersection where I was stopped, the road got steep and winding as it went down the mountain. The day could have ended much differently.
