Ford will be issuing three safety recalls here in North America and here is what you need to know about the latest set of recalls.
The largest recall out of the three will be the driveshaft recall which would affect about 293,558 units of Ford Transit from 2015 – 2017 in the US with a few more affected in Canada and Mexico. The recall was issued after it was discovered that there might be an issue with the driveshaft flexible coupling which could crack leading to loss of motive power and unintended movement.
The other recall will affect the 2019 Ford Edge model with 366 units affected in the US and 65 more in Canada that are made from the 18th of September until the 19th of September. It was reported that seatbelt pretensioner anchor might have been crimped improperly which would then lead to it not being able to restrain the driver during an accident.
The final recall will affect the 2019 Ford Expedition and 2019 Lincoln Navigator SUV which were assembly on the 5th and 6th of September this year and 6th fo September for the Lincolns. It was reported that the rear toe link fastener was not tightened correctly which would increase the risk of injury or crash.
Those affected will be contacted by Ford with the fix to be done for free.
