Ford has officially announced a recall affecting more than 100,000 vehicles because of two issues found with the passenger side half-shaft and the panoramic sunroof.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a total of 101,000 Ford vehicles in North America will have to be taken back to the dealers. Out of these, 92,022 cars suffer from a potential issue with the passenger side half-shaft and it includes the Ford Taurus, the Ford Interceptor, the Ford Flex, the Lincoln MKS and the Lincoln MKT from the 2013-2014 model years, as well as the 2012-2014 Ford Edge and the 2014 Lincoln MKX.
Besides this recall, the North American based automaker has also announced another one, affecting 2,124 cars on the continent, because of some problems with the panoramic sunroof. This includes the F53 and the F59 Commercial chassis models which also have some problems with corrosion. 368 units of the Ford Transit Connect vans are also recalled because the mislabeling with the brake reservoir cap label and 197 Fiestas, in North America, have a potential issue with the fuel tank as the adhesive layer hasn’t been applied onto the tank and this may leak.
