Ford is recalling more than 650,000 F-150 and Lincoln Mark LT trucks to fix a hose that could affect the vehicles’ braking power, reports the AP.

Included in the recall are the 2005-2006 versions of the trucks with 5.4 liter 3-valve engines. There have been 11 minor accidents and no injuries related to the problem, says Ford.

Ford spokesman Wes Sherwood says more than 600,000 of the trucks are in the U.S. and about 50,000 are in Canada.
