Ford Motor Company has issued no less than four separate recalls in North American for various issues.
According to the car manufacturer, the first recall is affecting the 2015 Lincoln MKZ. This has been announced because of the park lamp problem which basically means that when the headlights are on, the taillights are brighter than regulations allow, affecting visibility of oncoming drivers. The affected cars are the MKZs made between February 17, 2014, and March 19, 2015, and they include a number of 22,600. The second recall is covering 100 units of the 2015 Ford F-150, made between January 30, 2015, and January 31, 2015. This has been announced because of potential issue with some underbody heat shields which is increasing the risk of fire.
The third recall is covering the 2014 Ford Focus, Edge, Escape and Transit Connect and the 2014-2015 Fiesta, in a number of 50,157 units. These have an issue with their nickel plating on the fuel pump which may cause it to seize. If the pump will seize, the car will not be starting or may stall while driving and it will increase the risk of a crash. The fourth and final recall includes the 2013-2015 Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ and the 2015 Ford Edge, in North America, because of the steering gear motor attachment issue. If the steering gear motor bolts will fracture, the steering system may default to manual steering mode and it will be making the car difficult to steer, at low speeds. There are a total of 520,000 units affected by this issue.
