Recall roundup: Ford F-150, Expedition, Mustang, Windstar and Lincoln Navigator

The North American based automaker Ford has recently announced a recall for the F-150, Expedition, Mustang, Windstar and Lincoln Navigator, because of a problem with corrosion on the rear axle for the Windstar and a problem with the transmission range sensors in the rest.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 10,500 units of the 2011-2012 Ford F-150s, made in Dearborn Truck Plant between the 13th of October 2011 and the 27th of February 2012, 2012 Ford Expeditions and Lincoln Navigators manufactured between October 19 2011 and December 17 2011 in Kentucky, and 2012-2013 Ford Mustangs made in Flat Rock, Michigan, between October 17 2011 and January 9 2012 will be affected by this recall.

The NHTSA is also saying that the transmission range sensor in some vehicles may not indicate when the reverse gear has been engaged and this might lead to a collision or a pedestrian being hit. The Ford F-150s, Expeditions, Navigators and Mustangs affected have been equipped with the six-speed automatic transmission. Owners of the above mentioned models can contact Ford at 1-866-436-7332.

Besides the four vehicles above, Ford has also announced a different recall for the Windstar, made between 1998 and 2003. According to the car manufacturer, 60,000 units of the Windstar minivans will be affected by this recall and owners will have to take them back to the dealers because of a possible problem with corrosion on the rear axle. Both recalls are expected to begin soon. Owners of the Ford Windstar can also contact the company at the number listed above.
