Last Friday, November 16, 2018, Ford issued a recall for four of its recent top-selling trucks and SUV models. They suggest that vehicle owners of affected models go to dealers for a review, replacement, or repair to prevent injury.
A spokesperson for the Detroit Free Press said that they have worked hard to address and identify the issue quickly. It’s an inconvenience to their customers, but it’s also essential to ensure their safety and to improve the quality of their vehicles. The spokesperson also said they are committed to providing products that are high-quality, always choosing to address issues when they arise to better serve their customers.
Currently, there are no known injuries, fires, or accidents relating to this latest recall. It is primarily based on the potential risks.
Ford also issued a recall for almost 1.3 million Focus vehicles in October because the vehicles could stall without warning. Stalling and fuel system problem were found in model years between 2012 and 2018 that had 2L four-cylinder engines. Customers were told to keep their fuel tanks half-full or full, as gauges might not work correctly.
Expedition and Navigator
The most recent recall significantly impacts the 2018 Lincoln Navigator and 2018 Ford Expedition.
Almost 38,000 vehicles could be missing the J-channel reinforcement brackets for the second-row bench seats. The seat assembly may not be properly restrained if one or two of the brackets aren’t there, which can increase injury risk.
