I bought this truck used in 2011 and have had soft pedal/excessive pedal travel ever since I brought it home, even worse when trailering, all brake pads ans rotors are in good condition

Do you drive a 2006 FORD F-150?

Just because a car has been recalled does not mean it is not a reliable car. Millions of cars get recalled every year. Recalls often involve problems that are rare but could cause a serious problem if they occur. So the risk to any given driver is often remote, even though there may be a few high-profile incidents traced to the problem.
