Ford has issued a recall for several Edge and Lincoln MKX vehicles because of a problem with corrosion.
The North American based automaker Ford has recently announced a recall for the Edge and the Lincoln MKX vehicles because of a problem with corrosion. The company says that there is a possible corrosion under the reinforcement brackets where the fuel tank has been mounted onto the vehicle and in this case, a fuel odor, a fuel leak and even a “check engine” light might be the result. A fuel leak under these conditions can mean that an ignition source may result in a fire, increasing the risk of injury.
Ford says that one fire problem may be related to this condition but no injuries and accidents have been reported. The affected vehicles are the 2007 – 2008 Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX< which have been put together between the 15th of June, 2006, and the 22nd of September, 2008. A total of 186,024 units have been sold in the United States and 18,424 units in Canada. The company’s dealers will be inspecting the fuel tanks and they will replace or repair them at no cost to the owners. For more details on the subject, owners should contact their local Ford representative.
