Recall for over 591,000 Vehicles in North America announced by Ford Motor
Ford Motor is recalling over 591,000 vehicles in North America. The recall is related to four separate issues including steering gear motor attachment bolts that carry the risk of getting fractured due to corrosion cracking.
A safety recall from Ford is meant for 518,000 Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ vehicles (sold between 2013 and 2015) and 2015 Ford Edge vehicles in North America for steering gear motor attachment bolts that may break due to rust cracking. It needs to be understood that breaking of the steering gear motor bolts can make it more difficult to steer after the steering system defaults to manual steering mode.
Ford Motors has revealed that this recall is for vehicles originally sold in, or are currently registered in Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
Canadian corrosion provinces of Ontario, Quebec, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick are also part of the recall.
Extended warranty will cover customers in non-corrosion states or provinces if they come across similar issues.
Steering gear motor attachment bolts will be replaced with new bolts by dealers for free on customer vehicles.
A recall for 22,600 2015 Lincoln MKZ vehicles in North America has also come from Ford because the park lamps are brighter than allowed by regulations. The body control module software will be updated by dealers to reduce the intensity of the park lamps to comply with regulations.
Certain Lincoln MKZ vehicles built February 17, 2014 to March 19, 2015 at Hermosillo Assembly Plant are the affected vehicles. Ford has said that there are 21,435 vehicles in the United States, 1,066 in Canada and 115 in Mexico.
