Recall roundup: Lincoln MKS image

The North American based automaker Lincoln has recently announced a recall for some of the MKS sedans, because of a problem with the safety locks.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a total of 12,569 units of the Lincoln MKS sedans will be affected by this recall, along with several Ford Explorer and Taurus, and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers in order to get the issue with the safety locks fixed. The NHTSA says that the child safety locks on the vehicles mentioned above may change from the activated position to a deactivated position without notice, increasing the door opening risk.

Lincoln and Ford are currently notifying owners of the cars who will be asked to visit their closest dealer, who will test the safety locks and replace them free of charge, if necessary. The affected vehicles have been produced between November 29, 2012, and December 12, 2012, and are from the 2013 model year. The recall is expected to begin soon but if you own one of these vehicles, you should contact the NHTSA at 1-888-327-4236 or Lincoln at 1-866-436-7332 for further information.
