Ford is issuing no less than three new safety campaigns, covering a total of 130,801 vehicles in North America.
The largest one includes 128,823 examples of the 2009 and 2010 Ford Edge and Lincoln MKS, out of which 110,636 are found in the United States alone. These models are experiencing corrosion problems and were registered or originally sold in Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin and the Canadian provinces of New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Prince Edward Island and Quebec.
Dealers will inspect the fuel tanks and repair or replace them at no costs to customers. The second recall is covering 1,900 units of the 2016 Ford Mustang vehicles in North America which may have some restraint parts damaged during shipping from supplier to installation in the cars. If they have been damaged, than the parts might not conform to the requirements of FMVSS 209 for seatbelt assembly performance or FMVSS 225 child restraint anchor systems. The automaker is not aware of any injuries or accidents related to this issue. The affected muscle cars have been built at Flat Rock between September 26 and October 1. The third recall is covering just 71 units of the 2016 Ford E-Series cutaway and chassis cab, produced at Ohio Assembly Plant, between November 3, 2014, and September 1, 2015. These have a potential issue with the trailer brake controller which may result in extended braking distance.
