Most people won’t even have to worry about their steering coming off mid-drive but Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ drivers will have that to worry about when they are behind the wheels.
Ford has issued a recall to bring back about 1.3 million unit of Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ after reports surface of their steering wheel detaching itself mid-drive.
According to Ford, the issue is with the bolt of the Steering wheel. The bolt could loosen resulting in the steering wheel detaching itself. The fix will involve fitting in a larger bolt with more threads along with a large nylon patch to keep things secure.
Models affected by the recall will be the 2014 to 2017 Ford Fusion built at the Flat Rock plant in Michigan from the 6th of August 2013 until the 29th of February 2016 along with Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ built at Hermosillo factory from 2014 to 2018.
The issue has already caused two accident and one injury.
