The second largest US automaker has announced its latest safety campaigns will affect the Taurus, Flex, Transit, Edge as well as the Lincoln MKS and MKT.
Ford has issued a recall notice that will affect a total of 97,500 units in the US and a total of 111,500 vehicles worldwide. Two of the safety campaigns have to do with fuel pump issues, with the third revolving around a power window software defect. The first campaign will affect 86,000 autos packing the Ford 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine, with 77,502 vehicles in the US. The vehicles have a fuel pump module prone to failure, which could lead to the engine not starting or stalling while on the road. No reports of injuries or accidents have stemmed from this particular issue – and the campaign involves the 2013-2015 Ford Taurus, Flex, and Police Interceptor sedan with the 3.5-liter EcoBoost, as well as the 2013-2015 Lincoln MKS and MKT.
Ford has also decided to bring back into services the 2015-2016 Transit van that has under the hood the 3.2-liter turbodiesel engine – it involves 2,500 vehicles worldwide, with 2,013 in the US. Again the fuel injection pump is at the origin of the defect. Lastly, the 2017 Ford Edge needs to come back to dealers due to a software problem for the power windows. The issue affects 23,000 Edge crossovers, with 17,985 examples in the United States.
